Won't you come and haunt my blog?

Dry, brittle leaves skittering across the sidewalks, torn and scattered by a cool October wind. Full moon trapped in bare branches that twist in anguish against a night sky. Iron-gated cemetery filled with shadows upon shadows and only an occasional glimpse of a softly glowing tombstone. Footsteps in the night, creaking doors, and a swift, silent movement caught only by the corner of the eye.

If goosebumps, prickling at the back of your neck, and a decided uneasiness at entering a dark room appeal to you, you're in the right place! Welcome to Ubiquitous Ghosts, a blog devoted to the paranormal, the strange, the unexplained, and writing about all of them.

You see, I write ghost stories. I collect ghost stories. Heck, I've lived ghost stories. I grew up in a haunted house, an experience –or should I say a collection of experiences?– that definitely changed my outlook on life and provided me with a permanent interest in that twilight area beyond the grave.

I've read other blogs about the supernatural, from skinwalkers to ghosts, from monsters to psychic experiences, and now it's time for me to jump into the arena and tell a tale or two of my own. Maybe you've got a story you'd like to share? I'd love to hear it. Then we can revel in glancing over our shoulders and turning on lights against the darkness because, after all, ghosts are indeed ubiquitous.


  1. Great start, lady. I know you have fabulous stories to tell, too!

  2. Personally, I love goat stories. The horns, their eating habits, the way their cloven hooves help them climb rocks, their ...


    Oh, ghost?

    My bad.


  3. Hey you, great start to your blog. I'm with Norm on this one, I love goat stories-the Billy Goats Gruff-

    Okay, I couldn't let him flounder there on his own.

    I too lived in a haunted house.

  4. Norm, why would you put cloves in goat hooves? They still taste terrible, they make the goats mad, and it's a waste of perfectly good cloves!


    Hi, Ophelia! Welcome to Blogspot. I never lived in a haunted house, so I'm looking forward to your stories.

    Be seeing you,


  5. LOVE ghost stories! Will look forward to reading some great ones on your blog. Welcome!

  6. Love ghost stories. I went to St. Augustine a few years ago- and saw a face in a locked chapel after hours while on a ghost tour. Interestingly, it wasn't a documented haunting...

    Needless to say, I freaked out in the hotel room that night.
