I have come across too many people who think that if they don't belong to a heathen group, then they cannot possibly follow the gods of the north. This is not true.
You are unlikely to find that here.

Lately I've been interested in seidr, but that too would be difficult to practice by oneself (although Katie Gerrard's book "Seidr: The Gate is Open has suggestions for incorporating seidr into solitary practice).

I came across something that made me remember the discussion you and I were having on whether or not seidhr was a community or solitary practice:

Seiðr was a solitary art, where the seið-witch was not a member of a coven, as in found in other European witch traditions, although a seið-practitioner might have attendants or a chorus to assist her in the practice of her magic. In a very few rare instances only do the sagas report a group of seið-workers practicing together, there they are usually kin folk, such as a pair of sisters, a father and his family, and the like (Ellis-Davidson, 37-38).

Again, though, I haven't read much on seidr and I imagine practicing it is quite different now. Without witnessing generations of it and it's practice in the community or household, one would almost need to be guided through it by some sort of coven in the modern world.
