Why, oh, WHY did I read this just before I'm due to go to bed? What was I thinking??? ;-) (No, but seriously; I'm totally creeped out, right now.)

Great ghost facts! True about the smell. I have a tai chi student who told me she grew up in a haunted house. One day she was taking a break from working out, and she went to sit in a part of the studio we call "the creepy corner." All of a sudden she was up out of her chair, peering behind the little table in the corner, and generally looking like she was smelling something nasty. At the end of class, she came up to me and said, "Is this place haunted?" I told her I thought there was something off in the corner she'd been sitting in. She told me that as soon as she sat down, she'd been hit with the strong smell of wet dog.

True story!

I recently had some activity in my home my bedroom door opened wide,and no one was there, I heard a noise coming from my night stand, very shocking to hear it, I was afraid to look, but got up and turned on the light, and looked at the stand my lampshade had been turned it is square,, my heart was pounding, I fixed it and went back to bed, I would like to believe its one of my cats that have passed on,It used to sit there, i miss her so much still, she was 18. I have a Jesus lives sign it was knocked down the other day,today I just accept that they are here, and love company, I had a party for christmas and my family was here, we took group photos and there were so many of those bubbles what I called them in the pics with my family, I have felt spirits in my home for 9 years now, I love my house and dont plan to leave it. as long as I feel safe here were ok.

What you composed was very logical. However,
think about this, what if you were to create a awesome title?
I ain't saying your information is not good., however suppose you added
a post title that makes people want more? I mean "10 Interesting Ghost Facts" is a little boring.
You ought to glance at Yahoo's home page and see how they write news titles to get people to open the
links. You might try adding a video or a related picture or two to grab readers excited about what you've written.

In my opinion, it could make your posts a little livelier.
