I don’t care what anyone says. Time waster that Twitter may be for some, it’s been a freaking connection gold mine for me. Haunt Jaunts has two more guest bloggers lined up because of it.
The next one is set up for now under the mysterious/exotic sounding username “skatoolaki.” (Also her Twitter handle, a.k.a. @skatoolaki.)
Between that tag line and this disclaimer at the bottom of her website: “This page brought to you by our hard-working staff of one-legged, hunchbacked, hair-lipped gnomes with psoriasis,” I do believe we’re in for quite a treat from skatoolaki!
And what is it she might be writing about? The Myrtles Plantation.
She zipped me a Tweet asking if I’d ever been. I’ve been to Louisiana, in particular NOLA a few times. Got some roots that sprouted there, and part of my family tree still remains.
However, I’ve never been to the Myrtles. Of course it’s on my Haunt Jaunting list, but, nope, I have not had the privilege of staying there yet.
I asked if perhaps she had, though, and when she Tweeted back “Its my favorite place ever – I’ve spent the night twice & had a spine-chilling/ awesome experience! Have to write it up for u!” I hopped all over that and extended her a formal invite.
Which she accepted.
So keep an eye out for skatoolaki’s Myrtles post and give her a warm welcome when she stops by.
(I know you will. HJ’s readers are THE best! And you know it, so take a bow and applaud yourselves. Well deserved!)
