Been thinking a lot about glamourbombing lately. I've never been a big fan of how it's commonly practiced in the community, I largely agree with Rialian's old essay on the subject in which he states "It is a flash in the pan, a quick burst of sparkle, that the "average" mind forgets or associates with something else. It is not making something enduring. It is not opening gates to the Otherworld, and making the environment better."

Thing is, I've recently found that doesn't have to be the case. I've been exposed to the work of the Marauder Underground with the Ellis sigil, for instance, and I've been very impressed. They've written things on the subject of real, effective glamourbombing that I haven't seen done by the otherkin community in the entire time I've been part of it (starting May 1, 1999).

Because of this exposure, I wrote my own essay on effective glamourbombing: The Death and Rebirth of Glamourbombing.

So far, I've only gotten a few reactions on the LJ glamourbombing community and on tumblr. So, I thought I'd post here and see what people's reactions were.
