The Ghost In My Machine is an internet campfire of sorts; gather ‘round, because it wants to tell you strange stories, play unusual games with you, take you on haunted journeys, and make you jump at unexpected noises. In its spare time, it enjoys warm blankets on cold nights, mugs of hot spiced wine, and imagining exactly what might be lurking in the closet.

If you’re the kind of person who loved playing Bloody Mary at sleepovers when you were a kid, whose idea of a relaxing night involves finding the scariest movie you can and watching it alone in the dark, or who can lose hours reading about unsolved mysteries and unexplained phenomena, The Ghost In My Machine is for you. It’s an exploration of the things that scare us, and why we keep coming back to them over and over and over again.

I realize that it’s highly unlikely most, if any, people will be interested in this pricey a tier, but if someone by chance is, and that someone is you: First, THANK YOU (in capital letters for extra emphasis, because seriously, YOU DESERVE IT); and second, let’s talk. Message me any requests you might have and I’ll see what I can do. Whatever it ends up being, it’ll probably be a one-time reward.

Site redesign:

It’s also time to say goodbye to free WordPress themes and pull out the big guns. A full, custom redesign done by a web designer and developer who really knows what they’re doing (that is, someone who is not me — I’ve hired the wonderful Megan Gray of House of Grays for the job) will vastly improve functionality, offering better navigation and greater ease of access while still keeping the spooky atmosphere we all know and love intact. The redesign will also include things like a logo and a stronger visual identity, making the whole site much more of an Experience for you, Gentle Readers. Reaching this goal consistently for 12 months will fund the redesign, installation, and launch.
