A New Day Is Coming For The Celtic Guide
Beginning this fall we will be bringing regular articles to this site as features rather than placed in the pages of a PDF magazine. There is too long of a wait between editions now and so we thought it better to give you a little bit of fun at a time.
We will also be republishing some great stories from past issues.

It will take a little time to make this all happen, but we weren't due for an issue until November anyway. We already have three new stories in for that issue which we will lead off with.
It is obvious that we have a wonderful fan base that looks forard to our combined efforts. Just since posting this update a few days ago, the counter at the bottom of the page shows we've recevied over 1700 visitors. I take everyone of these visitors seriously.
We also started a new Facebook site and had over 50 likes within the first 24-hour period.
Please be patient as I have worked very, vary hard to bring you six years of "Celtic" stories, and this will be a change for me in the style of administration, that I'll need to get use to.
Meanwhile, let me make three things clear.
1) I fully understand that the word "Celtic" is sometimes used loosely to represent anyone coming from Ireland or Scotland. It is true that many people from these countries are from other races entirely, and there are people from other countries, such as Wales, Cornwall, Brittany and more that deserve the designation of being Celtic as much or more than others. I am not trying for a Pulitzer prize on this website, just to have fun telling stories. Anyone interested in picking fly poop out of pepper can look at other sites. We're just here to be storytellers.
2) This website will no longer be associated with the old Celtic Guide Facebook site. I am not an adminitrator on that site and have no connection to it, and I believe it has been shut down. Our new Facebook presence, The Celtic Guide Magazine, can be found at:
...or click on the button at the bottom of this column.
3) This has been a labor of love since I began the Celtic Guide many years ago. It is non-profit, although I hadn't entirely planned it that way. I just have always loved "Celtic" type stories and wanted to share some. Many people jumped on the bandwagon and provided articles I never believed I'd even have the honor to present as part of this site. I thank them, and all the people who have participated (17 countries so far) either in providing articles, illustrations, photography, poetry, or music. I'll keep doing as much as I can, for as long as I can, with help from these wonderful volunteers.
Check back in a few weeks to see if I'm making any progress.
Thank you all for your support, your contributions, and your readership. You have made this what it has been. I'm just driving. You've got the roadmap.
