How the Internet Has Changed for Halloweeners

on September 13, 2010 - 10:37am

As I said, It's been 3 years since I first published a blog post on this site. Since then, the online world for a Halloween lover has evolved into an entirely different creature. And at least my blog, if not my entire site, has changed along with it. I wonder how many of you can relate.

Computer years are like dog years. One year equals the equivalent of 7 human years.

The story actually starts closer to 4 years ago, since I spent months getting the site ready before it launched. I met a boy who built websites. Real websites. And he said he'd build one for me and teach me how to use it (remember, things like Google's version of Blogger were still in Beta in 2006. They had just figured out how to let people post photos on their blogs, but it still wasn't user-friendly for newbies and non-tech folk like it is now. Unless you were into computers, you likely didn't even know about it).

I'd recently discovered various Haunter forums on the web (who were still in many ways fledglings at the time too). I was hungry for more Halloween resources. And I was still frustrated.

6th Annual Scarefest - July 3, 2010

Every year I miss Scarefest, a friendly, casual haunter event hosted by Boneyard Bargains. And every year I vow to attend the next one.

Scarefest is a gathering of people who share an interest in all things related to Halloween. In attendance will be people that own and operate professional Haunted Attractions, Home Haunters as well as Halloween product vendors. The event is free and open to anyone 16 years of age or older. Bring along your photos and stories to share with those who have the same passion as you. Food and beverages will be provided as well as a prize giveaway.

This year I'm keeping that vow. In fact, I will be one of the vendors.

So if you live in or around the GTA, come on out and meet fellow members of the Ontario Haunters Club.

Please send an email to Boneyard Bargains to RSVP by June 19th or call 416-266-7354.

It runs from 1pm-7pm on Saturday, July 3. Takes place in Kim and Paul's backyard - 115 Phillip Avenue, Scarborough Ontario.

So come on out, talk some Halloween, eat some snacks, and...oh...I don't know...buy some Ghoul Friday goodies. ;)
