News & Updates
First off, I just want to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone reading this email, and everyone who takes the time to share my posts on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram! I do all of the writing, research, web development, video editing, and content creation for GhostQuest.net myself, and I appreciate your support so much!!
So what's new at GhostQuest.net this month? As I mentioned in my last few newsletters, over the next several months (or maybe even longer) I'll be going through some of the older pages on GhostQuest.net that are still blank or in need of an update in order to deliver a more consistent experience for readers. For example, if you were to click my Haunted Pennsylvania page, you'd notice that there's nothing more than a bulleted list of locations there, whereas pages like Michigan and Massachusetts have much more detailed information. Then there are some states like California and Texas which are somewhere in between.
Over the last month I've added and updated 72 haunted locations for my Haunted Vermont page, and 141 locations for my Haunted Utah page, which brings the total number of haunted locations researched on GhostQuest.net to 5,793, and over 12,900 indexed. Vermont and Utah are both full of interesting history and amazing haunted locations, and I can't even say how much I enjoyed learning and writing about some of these fascinating, spooky stories!! And I know if you're from Vermont or Utah, you'll love reading about some of these spooky ghost stories from your home state, too!! As someone who has lived in Vermont and visited some of these locations myself, I have to say they are some of the creepiest around!! I even wrote a blog about my own spooky adventure in Vermont's most notorious haunted castle, which you can read by clicking here.
If you haven't checked out my list of haunted locations in your state, what are you waiting for!! I'd love to know if you've been to any of the locations on my list, or if I've forgotten any!! You can also leave a comment, share your own stories, or submit pictures and videos in the User Comments & Submissions section at the bottom of each page! I'd love to hear from you!!
