This isn’t a bad post, this is a good post… I think. HauntingReview (formerly ParanormalAmerica) has been my baby for so many years. I’ve always wanted to bring my readers the very best I could offer and I’ve been fortunate enough to have some amazing friends help and write articles along the way. While I’ve tried various methods over the years to create a means by which I can provide fresh content and still inspire me to write it’s never seemed to really stick. I think a large reason for that is a disconnection I feel from the website. In a sense, the website has less to do with me and my experiences and more about paranormal in general. This is great for many websites on the web. People seem to be able to easily write almost daily on the subject from a very objectionable point of view. This point of view, in terms of content, is something I think I’ve always lacked.
Over the last several months I’ve taken some time, here and there, to consider what it is that makes it so hard for me to keep up with writing content. And I feel this is it. I need not worry about keeping it so strictly focused and I think instead I should give in to my urges and get what I want to see out of this site and not what I think others want to see. I’ve spent so much time and energy focusing on what I think others want and trying to create new “features” that I felt could keep me entertained enough to keep up with. I want to but most days I just can’t.
HauntingReview is up for a revamp but this time it’s about me. I’m going to do what I always wanted to do with HauntingReview and make it a website focused on myself. My thoughts and feelings on any aspect of the paranormal world I want to (and sometimes maybe even more personal stuff). I want it to be a website where, in a pinch, I can come here and levitate concerns or feelings I have about a particular person, team, case, evidence, or whatever.
I also want to start giving back to the community…
I’ve kept a lot of my methods, theories, and techniques to myself. Things that have proven rather invaluable to myself in my investigative career. I think it’s high time I start sharing those with the community at large. But I still want this to be a place you can come to share your own ideas, too. You’ll still see your favorite writers on this site, too, contributing whenever they can. That won’t stop. HauntingReview is getting overhauled and redesigned to better fit what I want to get out of it… in short, HauntingReview is going to become a personal blog about the ideas of one paranormal investigator. Me. I’ve been working toward this end already and it shouldn’t be long. And don’t fret, your favorite articles will still be here and accessible.
Sound off in the comments and let me know what you think and always feel free to share any suggestions you might have.
Thank you to the thousands of readers I get every month… it means a lot and you’re why I haven’t dropped this website. I want to do right by you and I think this is how I can do that.
