Hey all —
As we near the six-month mark of when we launched Damned Connecticut, we have been told a few times how much people like this site, and for that, we are very appreciative. We created this site simply because we love this stuff and are interested in learning more about damned-type things, and hope you have enjoyed the ride thus far.
But like any creative endeavor, we are constantly looking for feedback on how to make this site better.
Many of you have suggested damned subjects to write about, haunted sites and creepy spots — and as such, we have a looong list of places we plan write about and to visit.
We know you like trying to find the true story of “The Haunting in Connecticut” and learning about the Melon Heads, reading our interviews and checking out the weird news, but what other “damned”-type stories would you like to see here? More TV, books and movie reviews? Classic Connecticut cases (like the famous Lindley Street haunting, Phelps Mansion or the Waterbury UFO story)? More mysteries of deep space? More giant squid or mystery corn? You tell us.
We also are going to try and make the site more user-friendly and interactive — we are toying with adding message boards or discussion forums, places where you can better share your damned stories and pictures with us as well as with each other. We want to make this more of a community (for lack of a better word), so we can continue to find out about all the cool stories out there. As Steve has said, one thing we have learned since we launched this site is that it seems as though pretty much everyone has a ghost story or odd tale to tell. We want to collect them all here, if possible.
Feel free to leave your thoughts and suggestions in the comments section of this post, or if you’re a bit shy, you can send us an e-mail.
Anyway, we hope the next six months here at Damned Connecticut will be as fun and productive as the first, and look forward to bringing you the most damned stuff we can find! Thanks again.
Ray, Kate and Steve
