Hey everyone! It's February already, which means it's time for the next GhostQuest.net monthly newsletter! I hope everyone is having a great New Year! For those of you who are just recently becoming part of the community - welcome, and thank you for subscribing! I'm Brian, and I run GhostQuest.net, the internet's soon-to-be largest resource for paranormal researchers, investigators, and enthusiasts. GhostQuest.net currently hosts one of the internet's largest online databases of haunted locations and paranormal hotspots in the USA.
Happy New Year
As some of you may have noticed, I didn't send out a newsletter in January. But that doesn't mean I haven't been busy plotting the next big updates for GhostQuest.net (which you'll learn about in this letter)! Before we get into the details though, I want to take this time to wish you all a Happy New Year and thank each and every one of you who has supported me and GhostQuest.net throughout the year.
News & Updates
In recent months I've started posting more stories, pictures, and other fun updates, which have received some great feedback from you guys; our awesome Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, and Pinterest followers! Last month was also the first month since starting GhostQuest.net that I was able to do well enough financially so that I didn't have to pay for our hosting costs out of pocket! So I'd like to give an EXTRA special thank you to those of you who have helped to support GhostQuest.net by checking out our tee shirts and other merchandise on Etsy, and been kind enough to make a monthly pledge on Patreon! Your support is helping GhostQuest.net to expand it's operations, and bring everyone more awesome content!
As the new year arrives, it's important to not only establish goals for oneself, but to also reflect on the events of the previous year. After reviewing much of my work over the last year, I decided to take several weeks in January to update the HTML and source code of GhostQuest.net, which not only gives everything a nice, fresh, clean look for the new year, but also helps to ensure GhostQuest.net is doing well in search engine placement and other important areas.
Now for the exciting part!! Here's what GhostQuest.net has in store for 2019 over the next few months!!
First off I'd like to announce that I've created a GhostQuest.net YouTube channel, where I plan to start posting some really cool videos about some of the haunted locations I've been writing about. Subscribers will be able to view some narrative videos with photos and video footage (coming soon!), and later I have plans to make 3D video walkthroughs (like this) of some of the places I hope to visit. Just move the mouse around or your phone, and you can look around in different directions throughout the video! This will add another dimension to the stories and legends on GhostQuest.net, and I can't wait to share some of these videos with you!!
Another exciting announcement is that Brian from GhostQuest.net will be starting a biweekly video podcast with Kristin from the Bodhi Project! We'll be talking about folklore, ghost encounters, metaphysics, paranormal theory, and a huge range of other topics. This is an exclusive announcement that I've only revealed to our newsletter readers, so stay tuned over the next month for when we make our official announcement! Me and Kristin will also be doing a live stream later this month on Facebook to talk about GhostQuest.net, who we are, and what our plans are for the future - and I'm so excited to get this started!!
Lastly, I'll be publishing an eBook later this month called the GhostQuest.net Folklore Encyclopedia: New York, that compiles a huge list of ghosts and haunted places into a digital encyclopedia that can be purchased for just $0.99!! So keep an eye out for all these new updates coming over the next several months, and feel free to drop me a message on my social media accounts! I'd love to hear from you!
Well, that's it for our February 2019 newsletter! Thank you all again so much for subscribing and supporting GhostQuest.net! Have a spooky February and stay warm!
