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.
