I went on my first unofficial ghost hunt in Iowa it must have been in 2009/2010. My niece was experiencing some things happening in her bedroom and I said I would stay the night. Nothing happened. It wasn't for my lack of trying it seems things that go bump in the night take a night off sometimes. I do not doubt what my niece and my family have experienced. It's just that I have not ever experienced anything like they have. My family members are the ones who should be writing blogs and telling their stories. I guess I am a little jealous because my experiences with the paranormal have been more normal than paranormal.
I could write about the house I grew up in where all of my family member (except me) had experienced something they could not explain. But those stories are second hand and I do not really know all of the details.
What I do now as an expensive hobby :) is investigate claims of paranormal events. When I tell people I am a ghost hunter someone always has a story to share or a story from someone they know. I love hearing stories. I would also love to hear from people who want to share their experiences in Northwest Arkansas. And other places because life is not all about Arkansas.
