Monday Mash Up: Best of the Ghoulie Awards

Hey All, it’s been awhile since I’ve done a mash-up, but lately I’ve been satisfied by such awesome ghost and mystery blogs, that I had to do a mash up for those of you interested in the strange just like me.

First one comes from the amazing Catie Rhodes, over at Full-Tilt Backwoods Boogie.  If you haven’t checked out Catie’s blog yet, you’re missing out!  She posts on 80’s cult classics, historical southern serial killers and big time murders, all things Bonnie and Clyde!, and forces invites her husband along on many cave/creepy jaunts.  Her post, The Ghosts of Longhorn Cavern, was full of interviews and film footage, and the duo’s own personal ghost catch on camera.  What are you waiting for?

Full of Fabooolousness, Tiffany White writes about things that make you go Oooo.  Her post on The Kiss and Kill Murder was a fascinating murder story, but it also comes to her from her mom’s hometown school days.  Take a walk through High School, if you dare, and learn the story of Mack Herring and Betty Williams.

One of my favorite new bloggers is Ellie Ann who started up Spirit Saturday.  Every saturday she writes about a new possible spirit or legend.  I had fun reading her post on The Weretiger, a story told by a missionary about a shaman in Thailand.  Go get your say in on whether it really happened like he said!

Mindi Anders is a religious cult survivor.  Intrigued?  If you’re unfamiliar with her work in progress, Playing God, you can hop over to her sight by clicking the link to check out the synopsis.  She recently did an interview with writer, Matt Shields at his blog explaining why writing about her experience leaving a cult is more therapeutic than therapy.  Check out Buffy the Cult Slayer.

In some sort of world where you get the opportunity of a lifetime and you’re invited to go on a ghost hunt with a paranormal investigative team, you’d be my friend, Mark Petruska.  Mark just got that opportunity and wrote about the ghosties he encountered, some of which weren’t nice, in Just Another Night in the Ghost Hunting Business.  If you believe in ghosts you’ll be freaked out, if not, maybe Mark will change your mind.

That’s the Best of the Ghoulie Awards this week.  Any others I missed?  Leave a link to them below, I love ghost stories and mystery!

  3. Ooooo, thanks for sharing. I’m passing this on to other spooky friends.

  4. Equally scary are the mayflies covering my front door. Ugh, I hate this season. I know they only live one day, but their creepy bodies will plaster the sidewalks and windows of all of downtown for the next month. Disgusting!

  5. Thank you so much for the Kiss and Kill Murder linkage! I’m behind on my blog reading, and this made my day today! I am also a HUGE blog fan of Catie and Ellie’s. Since we share similar taste, I’m now going to check out Mindi & Mark!

    1. Thanks for the creepy follow up about your mom running into Mack. Eerie!

    1. Very interesting interview Mindi, you are so honest with us about your experiences and I always appreciate that. Thank you for sharing your work and being interviewed!
