New Freelance Gig

A bit ago, I had posted about how I was waiting for some exciting news regarding a joint freelance project both M & I applied for. We were accepted & now I can share what we're doing. We are writing for examiner.com, the Columbus, OH edition, as Ghost Hunters! Yes, you read that correctly. Not only do I have a love for paper but I also have a fascination with the paranormal. We have posted 2 articles already & you can read them here. Here's an excerpt from our first article which explains our intentions:

"What we hope to accomplish is twofold. First, we aim to understand the background and mythology that led to the belief that a paranormal event has taken place in a particular location. On a micro-level, we want to understand the individual making the claims and on a macro-level, we want to follow the nature of the evolving meme that has been created in a community of people holding a given belief. This is as equally interesting as to whether or not an “event” actually took place. This is meant to go beyond whether an old pipe is pretending to be a ghost. Second, we, of course, want to determine the validity of the paranormal events being explored. Here, the balance of the skeptic and the believer will be used to shed light on whether or not there are really paranormal events reaching out to us from the ether."

We'd really appreciate if you're interested in the supernatural/paranormal that you'll visit us there (disclaimer: the more traffic we have, the more opportunity we have for earning a small compensation - though we are not doing this for financial reasons but for the love of both writing & the subject matter. We need to put those English & History degrees to good use).

We're super excited & hope that you'll visit us either at the examiner or at our personal blog.

Thanks for your support!

And you were right about my being blown away once you announced your project

Linda - when I saw your video about fears & you started off with horror films & haunted houses, I was wondering what your reaction would be to this. Thanks for your support!
