You also have to take into account that there are NeoDruids, MesoDruids, and Heathen Druids.  NeoDruids spawned out of Wicca, not bad, but not complete(not that anything is really complete).  The groups that got listed are all NeoDruids



MesoDruids are more like Masons.  



Heathen Druids are at little different.  Heathenry is about Family, Community, and Home.  In Heathenry, they attain to be good men and women, good husbands and wives, and good husbands and mothers.  To them Druids are the Higher Educational Tiers.  It is about having knowledge, and making sure it is passed on to the next generation.  



As a Druid, more specifically, a Heathen Druid and a MesoDruid.  I would stay away from any group that sells you a Druid Rank.  Alayne was right, Anyone who says they are the one True Source on Druidry, stay away. Also be wary of any Druid Group that claims lineage farther back than 18th Century.  There is only one left that predates 18th Century, and they are Christian Druid Monastery.  They are also relatively anti social.

Expertise

I am a Druid and a scholar of Wicca and other forms of Paganism - I can answer people's questions about Wicca, Witchcraft, Druidry (specifically), how to begin Pagan studies, Asatru, Shamanism and so on. I also feel myself competent to deal with the questions of teenage seekers looking to be Pagans, as I am a teenager myself.

Experience

I've been a Druid for almost a year, write essays for Witchvox, and I am currently writing a book on controversial Pagan issues. I am widely read about Wicca and other Pagan paths and about the best foundations for beginning such a rewarding spirituality.

Publications
I am listed under "Alayne Grey" on Witchvox and have written several essays, including one about my own beginner's experience.

Education/Credentials
I am a Pagan teenager completing my A-Levels, having achieved high GCSE awards the previous year in 2005.
