I run a second Tumblr as a group blog, designed for sharing personal and true ghost stories: myghoststories.
You can follow it on Tumblr, or via RSS feed, which would make me happy, and/or submit your own story, which would make me even happier. If you would like to become a contributing member, which means I don’t have to approve your postings first, you may do so: just message me via ask for the link.
I’ve already shared one of my own stories at length:
