A Brief Introduction…

You may have stumbled upon this blog whilst searching for information, and I’m so glad you did! My name is Liz, though here I’ll go by Asteria. My intentions for this blog are simple: I wish to document my learning in an easy-to-access manner and share what I know with the world.

Please feel free to comment corrections (preferably with sources), but don’t be a dick about it. Any rude or unruly comments will be deleted.

Some of my posts may be my opinion on a matter, rather than black and white facts, and therefore be debatable. I will make it clear which ones these are, and as always I’m open to hearing another perspective as long as it is respectful.
