As Cryptomundo moves into Year Four, I want to pause for a moment to hear directly from you.
I wrote my first posting to this blog on October 13, 2005, and since then, nearly 4000 blog postings and over 50,000 comments have been published here.
You might think that only a few people are registered and can make comments to Cryptomundo, because you have actually become familiar with some “regulars.”
But were you aware that you might be among the almost 10,000 individuals who are registered and can make comments here?
So, I have a couple short questions to ask you.
In a line or two, can you tell me briefly whom you are (age, location, student or occupation or retired)?
And what are your favorite kinds of postings you would like to read going into the next year?
No negatives, please. Those are easy to figure out. Please share what categories, types of stories, animals and cryptids you like to read about.
Hey, and speak up if you’ve been quiet in the past. Don’t allow only the regulars, whom I do want to speak up too, of course, be the only ones we hear from over the next few days.
Thank you for coming here daily to read my words, and I appreciate you taking the time to share your words in the comment section in the next few days about the future.
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.
