Created new online poster promoting the new “Your Vampire or Ghost Story” page on VampiresNextDoor.com. You can see it here.

Submit your ghost or supernatural story now!

Click the graphic to see it full size. Had a ghostly encounter, or any other paranormal experience? You can write about it here at VampiresNextDoor.com!

I am also thinking of doing recorded interviews with people who have had ghostly experiences. More to come on that.

Put out some small flyers last week at my old Alma Mater, Florida State University. Kept them small – I know how those bulletin boards get swamped with posters, lol. It was late after a meeting there with other local design professionals, so it was getting dark by the time I put them out. Fun, though. Got a lot of 2nd glances from the students, ha. Were probably wondering about that tall red-headed dude wearing black baseball cap and red shirt with tattoo sleeves.

I remember enjoying keeping an online journal (before advent of Facebook) years ago at the old site preceding this one, so I’m starting it up again here. Sort of a “behind the curtain” look into the creation of this website.

I had written earlier an intro about why I spend my time working on this website, but decided that was better placed in the “Sinister Beginnings” section.

So, what goes into creating an ambitious website like this one? Since I have worked almost exclusively on websites for a while now, it is more of a challenge time-wise. How to find the time to get it all done? My problem is that I am a perfectionist. Can’t put something down until I am satisfied with it.

Photo editing

Photo editing software is an important part of the process of creating a fantasy website. Here, a grainy pic (with me sporting blonde hair) is turned into a more suitable graphic for the character portrayed.

Well, I am NOT satisfied with this website yet. Not by a long run.

I want it to have MORE; more stories, more history of the legends about vampires and the occult, more EVERYTHING of an esoteric nature. I want this site to be a place where people can check back and always find something entertaining. Or thought-provoking. Or, even, bad-funny in the sense of watching a train wreck unfold, lol.

The latter is probably most accurate, ha. But, you be the judge.

Later.
