Ready to Write About All Things Halloween?

halloween The big Halloween project I mentioned the other day is on its way to being a reality. The domain name has been registered and the social media accounts have been set up.

The domain we went with is VeryHalloween.com. There’s not much there yet, just the base WordPress with Genesis Framework. There will be a magazine style layout added later, along with some customizations and tweaks.

If you’re interested in being a contributing author on the new website, please fill out this short form: http://www.veryhalloween.com/contribute/

You can follow the site on

I look forward to working on this project with everyone involved :)

The Halloween Project

8.3.1This project has been brewing in my mind for at least two years now. I’ve always done well with the seasonal Halloween content marketing, seeing bigger commissions, more conversions, and higher sales in October than in December in many cases.

Every year I would get distracted and not get my Halloween content ready in time for the big push, so I was using Squidoo a lot because they had great traffic numbers during the season. It worked out well. Well, this year that’s not an option since Squidoo is closing their doors just before the season starts off.

I’ve done Halloween project websites in the past and they did okay. The thing with a seasonal content website it helps to have large quantity and I simply couldn’t produce that quantity all by myself in addition to managing my transcription business. I can churn out loads of content, but my areas of expertise are limited and I was focusing mostly on recipes and quick costume ideas for kids. I knew that needed more if I wanted to get anywhere in the Halloween world, I needed other writers to join me.

So here is a summary of what I would like to do…. (and what I would like to invite you to join me on)

A website devoted to all things Halloween. A combination of original and curated content. Articles, videos, photos. The best of the best. Products, recipes, ideas, planning, decorating, candy, the works. All Halloween, all the time, with content being added and updated all year long.

Multiple authors. Me, you, and Halloween fans everywhere are invited to participate. However, there will be a moderation process and registration will not be completely open door. Likewise, the content will be moderated for quality purposes.
