How I suddenly became a paranormal investigator…

Adventure Seeker Sarah: Paranormal Investigator?! For anyone who knows me well (or honestly, anyone who watches me for more than five minutes) it’s quite clear that I have a love for adventure, but also consider just about anything a valid adventure. I, in fact, have considered stopping along the side of the road to take macro photos of plants an insects valid as an adventure. Adventure is everywhere and I like to write about it. So, yes, everyone knows that I like adventure. And guess who else knows that? The Facebook algorithm. At least ninety percent of my targeted ads are for random adventures. And guess what – I actually like it! Honestly, I know the targeting advertising of Facebook really annoys most people, but I actually find it helpful in many ways. It’s actually how I started my journey as a travel writer. One of the most recent wins from targeted advertising was my new position with Class-A Paranormal Investigation. Yes, you read that right – from Facebook targeted advertising to being an official ghost hunter. So, let’s break it down – how exactly does that happen?

So, a little bit of backstory (I’m all about that backstory). I have always been a lover of all things spooky. As a child, my collection of books heavily leaned toward ghost stories, murder mysteries, and books about occult activity. I had a childhood full of firsthand accounts of spooky happenings. Even with all of that, I still consider myself quite skeptical. I definitely believe that there are things we can’t explain, but do believe that there is a scientific explanation to be found. I honestly spend a fair amount of time just hanging out in cemeteries because I find it soothing.

I’m also super into Halloween and horror movies. We always decorate our yard like crazy for Halloween, We’ve run our own yard haunt, and I made a point of it to visit every haunt available to me this year (still lots to see next year though). We have a giant collection of horror movies and my kids have even been in plenty of horror movies, including both Resident Evil: Welcome to Racoon City and Anklebiters, which both released late last year.

So, I suppose it would make sense that Facebook targeted me when a paranormal investigation team in my area was looking for new members, and boy am I glad it did!

Of course, being me, the second I saw it, I applied without a second thought. My children sat beside me saying, “Okay, that’s pretty cool, but do you really need another job?”. Of course, they were not wrong but…GHOST HUNTING! So, I applied immediately and within hours was in an interview with the amazing team leader and super excited to be getting started on a paranormal investigation journey. The approach at Class-A was exactly what I had hoped for – science over sensationalism. We are a team that will actually investigate and find the objective truth. Perfect.

So, you’re in on the ground floor of my spooky journey! I am the official “Marketing Queen/Location Scout/Investigator for Class-A paranormal and I intend to tell you all about it as we progress!

Do you believe in ghosts? Have a spooky story to share? Let me know in the comments!
