Clicking on the cover image above will take you to the third issue for 2016. The 2012-2015 tab above will take you to ALL earlier issues, which can be accessed FREE. Our June issue features another great illustration by Larry Andrews on the cover, and inside is an article by him that gets to the deep meaning of kith and kin. Also inside, we have an interview with a a Celtic Band direct from Prince Edward Island Canada – The Sky Family. We've posted some of their music under our free music tab for your listening pleasure. There are many other great articles inside, as well, so it's time to get to reading the June Celtic Guide!
As you enjoy this June issue, and past issues of Celtic Guide, we will begin work on the August issue. Our theme is Hearth and Home and we already have some remarkable stories.
We have networked around the world in an amazing way. Just look at this list – USA, Canada, Scotland, Ireland, England, Wales, Australia, New Zealand, Chile, South Africa, Portugal, Spain, Germany, Poland, Romania and Austria. It's crazy man!
Our every-other-month publishing schedule has really taken the pressure off our many volunteers. We will publish again this year in August, October and December. Our themes are posted in the current issue and on this site. Deadlines are the tenth of the month preceding the month of publication - for example May 10th for the June issue.
Of course, there is always the Facebook page with lots of postings there, too.
We are well over 18,300 Facebook 'likes' and would have many more had not Facebook tightened up restrictions on likes!
We began our fourth year with 62,381 website hits on the counter on this page and we jumped to 77,850 hits as of this June upload, and the hits have just kept coming. We base this on the counter located on this page, however, based on weebly.com stats, we actually get many more hits that don't register here but take searchers to other parts of this website, especially directly to our latest issue. For instance, a check today showed nearly 400 unique hits this week alone, plus nearly 1,000 total hits for this week, so far, according to the Weebly stats. These stats have numbered as many as 220,000 hits since we started, or about 5,000 hits on average per issue since we first began this adventure five years ago. It's exciting to learn that many of these hits come right after the new issue is posted, meaning people are anxious to read the next issue.
All of our issues celebrate Celtic heritage, and all are available free using the tabs above, as well as the music you can also stream for free. We certainly hope you enjoy our completely volunteer efforts! We're still here, dedicated to Celtic storytelling.
We hope you enjoy the June issue in between your summer adventures and family outings, while holding tight to your love of all things Celtic. Meanwhile, we've done our part to bring family together with Kith and Kin issue.
