Time is Flying

Wow. Time is passing pretty fast now that the weather has warmed up here in Philadelphia. There’s only 4 months until the start of Oktoberfest. While I’ve been enjoying the weather when it isn’t raining, I’ve also been trying to make steady progress on Funtober.

The plan is to add the next directory for Funtober soon. I’ve already started compiling the list of ghost tours across the United States. Although I don’t think that the tours of real haunted houses are as popular as the fake ones setup by the haunted house industry, I do think that they are a fun way to spend an evening and learn about the history of a neighborhood/section of a city. Although I didn’t encounter an apparition or other unusual occurrence on my ghost walk, I still had a great time.

I’ve also been working on gathering a list of blogs and Twitter accounts that I can use to help find news and event information during October to share with visitors here. Because Funtober covers a diverse set of interests during a defined time, it’s going to be a pretty long list. If you have a suggestion for a blog that I’ll find useful, feel free to leave a link in the comments along with a description of your site. It will definitely make my life easier.

Behind the scenes, I’ve also looked in to what it will take to sell Halloween costumes on Funtober. I’m not sure whether I will have the time to add a full catalog of costumes to the site. But I hope to at least feature a few of the more popular ones by Halloween 2012.

Last, but not least, farmers are reporting that their corn is starting to emerge from the ground. It won’t be long before they are cutting the corn so thst the design is visible!
