Some Blog Updates and quotes and references from The Outsiders
Hey all, you may have noticed that there is now a Disqus comment link beneath each post now that I have I finally added Disqus to this site. For now just consider this a trial run for the comments, which I don’t really expect any of you to use, but the Tumblr messaging never seems to work well for me, so this way I think it will be easier for some of you to get involved and to interact with you.
Of course feel free to contact me the “old-fashioned way” by e-mailing me at email@example.com if you ever have any thoughts/gripes about the posts.
One thing, if people start using this feature to spam or just be asshats, I will be forced to disable it. If anyone has any problems with this feature or with the site please do not hesitate to let me know!
I genuinely wanted to say that, in case some of you have been keeping up with some of the more political aspect of this field lately, you might be hearing about dead bigfoots and other things like that, well i’m here to tell you, don’t let stuff get you down. If you ever wanted to get into the field professionally, you still have a lot of time to make yourself what you want. There’s still lots of good in the world. And good to be done.
Moving on, I really hope you are enjoying the latest batch of posts! I’m trying really hard to keep up with things, but right now it is pretty much an army of one. I can’t stress how much I could use some assistants to help with blog archiving, post maintenance and cross-platforming (wordpress, but dont worry im not abandoning my Tumblr kids who I am so fond of ;) as well as make use of some book club organisers (using Goodreads), so if you’ve ever wanted to contribute to this community and you have a forte or interest in any of that, please do let me know!
I’m also always looking for people to share their experiences, encourage others they know to come to our community and share, and also I welcome researchers, writers, artists to donate cryptid illustrations, book reviews, etc. so if you want to get in on the team building now while it’s going on, this is the time to do it!
Please be serious though; I have had many interests placed but 99% don’t ever follow-through with me. I really have LIMITED time as it is to work on this venture, so please be respectful of that and understand that and I really need RELIABLE contributors, so please only contact me if you are SURE :)
I can’t say thank you enough for supporting this blog, and I really want to make sure this blog stays fresh, so please continue to show your support by sharing, commenting, participating in the polls and dropping a hello every now and then, as hearing from you guys makes me want to work even harder to bring you the content and topics you want to know about!
Would really love to see your participation in the polls and discussions below if you haven’t participated already! Why not take a few moments and participate RIGHT NOW? :)

Continuing on, I am so excited to tell you that today we hit 1200 followers! TWELVE-HUNDRED FOLLOWERS!! WOWOWOW! Cryptid Chronicles is only 18 months old, and I just want to give you all a HUGE THANK YOU for for giving me audience and for following, re-blogging, and hearting the posts. For interacting with each other, spreading the word and for giving me the opportunity to provide you with the interesting, strange and downright fascinating Cryptid-relevant history, accounts, news, data and developments that deserve recognition. I’ve loved sharing stories known, mysterious accounts of experiences with the unknown and unusual, and all the latest cryptozoological and monster hunting news that I think you want to know! If you ever have inputs on them or want to send additional information or donate art, everyone is encouraged to contact me, especially if you have an original article or want to supplement posts with location photos/follow-up report from your own independent investigations! Of course you will not only get exposure, but traffic back to your website and most importantly, credibility :) Get ahold of me and we can coordinate together!
If you live in Texas or visit near the Austin-Galveston corridor, drop me a line, maybe we can start a MeetUp for cryptid fans :)
And yes, yes, to the MANY, MANY, MANY asks about roleplaying. Yes, I will indie roleplay for you kids but only in the sense that my “character” is merely a “Chronicler”, that I supply “case” information for your investigation for whatever battle you may be about to take on ;) I will be the Chronicler you can come to, but please keep it clean and email with this subject ”((Roleplaying In Character)) Consultation Needed RE: WHATEVERBEAST” and I will reply in character as well, and we’ll see how that works out, okay? *laughing* no promises, but yeh, i’ll do that for you kiddos.
I really appreciate ALL of you, though, I mean this. I really do, just thank you so much for being into this stuff and finding enjoyment here. Seeing your comments makes me smile, sometimes even crack me up, (you guys know who you are), and yes, I do regularly visit random or not so random follower’s blogs from time to time, so yeh,I know what’s up with most of you, and you know what - you’re all okay by me.
So, stay gold, pony tumblrites, stay gold!
Ohh, and one more thing, is it time for another Giveaway contest yet?
