Ghost Hunting Groups

Over the years I’ve had the good fortune of meeting and working with a lot of different ghost hunters. One thing I’ve figured out is that ghost hunting groups are as different and varied as the people in them. Here are a few of the types of groups I’ve encountered. I don’t think one is better than the others-they just all have different perspectives on what ghost hunting is.


-The Scientists- These groups approach ghost hunting as a serious science. They will implement any equipment, gadgets or theories they find in a quest to prove (or disprove) the existence of ghosts.


-The Spiritualists- The people in these groups focus more on the religious and spiritual acts of ghost hunting. They often use psychics, perform house blessings and might even bring in a priest or two if things get too heavy.


-The Thrill Seekers- Some people go on a ghost hunt with one thing in mind-having a good time. Most of them are just curious people looking for a quick scare.


-The Fame Seekers- A few people get into ghost hunting simply because they see it as an easy way to get a little attention. A handful of people have become successful radio or TV personalities after getting involved in the paranormal and others often try to copy their success.


It’s important if you are looking for a group to work with that you find one that meets your personal needs and works with your ideas and view points of the paranormal.

The 5 Best Places to Tell Ghost Stories


Everyone loves a good spooky story, but there are some places that are perfect for sharing ghost tales. Here’s a list of my favorite places to tell them.

1.Around a campfire- Most people have at least a memory or two of sitting around a campfire listening to a ghost story. Being in the woods at night is the perfect setting for a scare.

2. At a slumber party-Young girls love scaring each other, and if anyone gets too frightened they can always hide in a sleeping bag or call their parents.

3.At a carnival, amusement park or special event-It’s fun making up stories about that strange person you see off in the corner. Who knows, they could really be a ghost.

4. At school-Many a ghost stories have been told in high school (and college) bathrooms. There’s even a good change there were rumors floating around of a spirit haunting the dorm hallway you stayed in.

5. At home- There’s really no reason you can’t scare your own friends and family with a good ghost story from time to time.

A Bit of Change

I've been doing some thinking about this blog, and I think I want to change my posting schedule a bit. I've been getting a bit bored doing a weekly news round-up, so I think I'm going to streamline the blog to one weekly post where I'll discuss paranormal topics or a random paranormal news article. Hopefully I'll be able to add a bit more variety and diversity this way. My goal is to post on Mondays, but that may change depending on my schedule.

I also love getting feedback, so if there are any topics or issues you want to hear about, shoot me a message or comment!
