    Hi there!

    Hi there,
    I'm Godiva. I was on Skadi occasionally. And a little while ago Leofric told me that Skadi was back - sort of. He told me about the Althing and I thought it was cool that people started it up. At first I thought that it would be fun to go to the site every now and then to read what people had to say, then Leofric told me that in order to read any of the posts I would have to register. I wasn't sure whether or not registering was such a good idea especially since I never really said much on Skadi. I think, hope, that I have discovered the root of my difficulty with posting and think that I will be able to overcome that.
    I am currently studying to earn a Bachelor's Degree in Anthropology with an emphasis in archaeology. (I spent the few months before Skadi shut down on an archaeological dig - a required course for graduation - and really enjoyed it). I hope to be finished with that sometime in Spring of 2008. I am happily married to the man you all know as Leofric. We recently just celebrated our third anniversary. I enjoy swimming, singing, knitting, sewing, reading, hiking, camping, digging , and spending as much time as I can with Leofric.
    I am of Germanic heritage, because of this I wish to learn more about past Germanics and more about my fellow Germanics. It is nice to have a place to come where I don't have to be shy about saying that I'm proud to be Germanic.
    I look forward to being with the members of the Althing here, and learning from you all!

    Leofric made you register? I'm not sure allowing a spouse to read the posts violates the "only one user per account rule", as long as the spouse doesn't post. I know my views are archaic, but I view married persons as being two halves of a unit. My wife never posted at Skadi or signed up for an account, but she occassionally like to read what was going on there. It never occured to me that if she wanted to read what was going on here, I would tell here to sign up for her own account.

    Well, we did have separate accounts at Skadi, because we felt like it would be a rule violation and we were very concerned that we stay within the rules when we joined.

    Of course, now that I'm a moderator, confidentiality and security concerns kind of make it more important that my account be mine alone.

    Sorry, I think I was unclear. Leofric did not make me register. He only explained that if I tried to visit the webpage without being a registered member I would not be able to read posts on the forum. I decided to register myself. He is not always around when I want to read things on the internet, and I don't expect him to be, so it would be really inconvenient for me to try to get access to read threads in this forum through his account. We are two halves of a whole but two independent halves that strive to blend together into a whole. I am happy to register and to leave my comfort blanket behind and post more.

    If you are interested in Germanic Anthropology, Archaeology and History then you will surely have much to contribute and learn here. Welcome.

    Welcome Godiva!!! I am glad you enjoyied the dig this summer. Even if you do not have the time and inclination to post frequently what you post is always worthwhile.

    And it is always nice to have another women's view on these things.
