I am pleased to be hosting a conversation about my blogging here at A Pilgrim in Narnia on Friday, hosted by Dr. Joe Ricke. All are welcome to join in. I have gone to about a dozen of these Friday afternoon events since the spring, and I quite like the dynamic. To prepare for the event, you might be interested in one of these posts:
- 1,000,000 Hits on A Pilgrim in Narnia (including updated statistics)
- Fun With Stats 1: Lessons on Growth from 5 Years of Blogging (tips for bloggers)
- Fun With Stats 2: Lessons on Connectivity from 5 Years of Blogging (tips for bloggers)
Here is the announcement, and I hope to see you there!
A Pilgrim in Narnia Mid-Stride:
Looking Both Ways with Brenton Dickieson
What in the world was Brenton Dickieson thinking about/dreaming of/wishing for when he launched his now uber-successful blog, A Pilgrim in Narnia, in August 2011? Looking back, almost ten years later, what does he think about the journey he has taken (and taken us on)? And, looking ahead, what does he foresee or hope for in the future?
These are not just rhetorical questions, friends. After all, this is the InklingFolkFellowship. We have standards to uphold, especially when it comes to collaborating with and promoting the very best of something as preciousssssss to us as Inkling scholarship.
Join us this Friday, November 20, at 4 p.m. (EST) for a conversation with (now Dr.) Brenton Dickieson about his life and work, especially his game-changing “Faith, Fantasy, and Fiction blog,” A Pilgrim in Narnia (now up to 1,039,287 visitors; no, wait, I just visited, so it must be 1,039,288).
As always, we meet on Zoom (information below). Please invite your friends to join us. Find our event page on Facebook or our post on Instagram and share them as you see fit. And please spend some time (if you haven’t before) wandering about in the rich land of Brenton’s Pilgrim blog: https://apilgriminnarnia.com.
See you Friday!. Please come with questions, comments, and words of encouragement for Brenton, a most generous scholar and friend to all InklingFolk.

Knowing your close knowledge of C.S. Lewis (and the wider Inklings), I wonder if you have any information about Lewis being aware of, or reading anything by Elizabeth Goudge?
Yes, thank you Dr. Gough. I actually answered you over here: https://apilgriminnarnia.com/2016/03/28/collections-and-reading-rooms/
Not terribly helpful, I”m afraid.
Hi Brenton, I only just found out about this, so I’m posting it here in case you haven’t seen it. Tolkien’s house in Oxford is up for sale and there’s a project to raise the money to buy it. https://www.projectnorthmoor.org/video
