For those of you who are just recently becoming part of the community - welcome, and thank you for subscribing! I'm Brian Weaver, and I run GhostQuest.net; one of the internet's largest free online resources for paranormal researchers, investigators, and enthusiasts.
News & Updates
First off, I just want to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone reading this blog, and everyone who takes the time to send me messages on social media, and interact with my posts! I appreciate it so much!
Over the last month I've made several exciting updates to GhostQuest.net!! Firstly, I released two new YouTube Videos: 11 Notorious Haunted Places in Buffalo, New York & 8 Notorious Haunted Places in Cambridge, Massachusetts! You can check out my latest video below, and if you enjoyed it, please consider subscribing to my YouTube channel for all my future creepy content updates!!
I've also been posting a weekly Blog about some of the awesome, spooky locations I write about on my New York & Massachusetts pages, in addition to adding new pages for each of the major cities in each of those states! What this does is allows users to see a much smaller page with information relevant to only that city, instead of listings for the entire state. This allows me to add more details about each individual location, including pictures, a widget that allows people to "rate" the location, and a section where viewers can leave comments or share their own stories. Over time I'll be creating a page like this for each city, and eventually one for each location... but that's a long ways away! In the meantime, check out this example for my Salem, Massachusetts Page!
As many of you may remember, last year I began working on my first book series: The Folklore & Haunted Locations Guide, which covers a list of allegedly haunted locations in each state. My first book, The Folklore & Haunted Locations Guide: New York is well on it's way to being published, and will hopefully be released sometime within the next few months!! Those who preorder my book will also receive a digital preorder bonus, which I'll be announcing as soon as I'm able to confirm! So keep an eye open on social media, because I'll likely be announcing it sometime in the next month or two!!
Lastly, I've reworked the GhostQuest.net Patreon Page to include some exciting new posts, and a brand new Founder Tier! Starting now, all of my Patreon supporters will receive early access to all of my blog posts and YouTube videos, as well as getting to vote on upcoming content, and more! So you'll get to see my blog posts and videos a whole week earlier than everyone else! Plus, once I reach 25 followers on Patreon I'll be doing a monthly giveaway where you can win awesome prizes, like gift cards, event tickets, hoodies, tee shirts, autographed merchandise, and all kinds of other stuff!! Additionally, those who join our Founder Tier ($5+) will have their name added to all my blog posts and YouTube videos as a special thank you!! So if you haven't already done so, please consider supporting GhostQuest.net on Patreon to help me cover some of the costs of hosting my website and delivering all this awesome content! Over the last several years GhostQuest.net has quickly become one of the largest and most valuable online resources for paranormal enthusiasts... but it's a HUGE project for just one person!!!
In recent months I've started posting more stories, pictures, and other fun updates on social media, which have received some great feedback from you guys; our awesome Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Tumblr, and Pinterest followers! So first off, thank you guys for your support! I love hearing from you, and reading your comments and messages. I've also been posting some new videos to my YouTube Channel, so be sure to like and subscribe if you haven't already. You can also reply to this email, and I'd love to hear from you!!
I'd also like to give a special shout out to my awesome Patreon followers (all 3 of them), who help to cover GhostQuest.net's monthly hosting costs! By making a small $1 monthly pledge you can really help me out with these costs, and for $3, you can become part of the "Energy Drink Tier," which helps me to stay caffeinated so I can continue delivering all this great content! Believe it or not, the cost of running and maintaining such a huge website really adds up! Once I reach 25 subscribers on Patreon, I'll also be doing a special monthly giveaway, where patrons are automatically entered to win awesome prizes, like tee shirts, hoodies and apparel, gift cards, event tickets, and other awesome merchandise!
Well, that's it for the GhostQuest.net February, 2020 newsletter! Thank you all again so much for subscribing and supporting GhostQuest.net! Have a spooky February!
