Sharon Hill's article about Bigfoot bloggers and why we do what we do
|Shawn: “Will I bet the farm on the existence of Bigfoot?”
Whether she knows it or not, we believe Sharon Hill has become a integral part of the Bigfoot community. Sharon Hill runs Doubtful Newsblog, providing skeptical views on paranormal, pseudoscience and anomalous news. She has ran many stories on the world of Bigfootery and she challenges the "unconfirmed" science emanating from the Bigfoot community. At Bigfoot Evidence blog, we like to encourage skeptics to come on and debate the evidence and issues posted here. We believe that skeptical debates are healthy and very important in keeping the discussion going.
Last week, Hill interviewed us about what it's like to run Bigfoot Evidence blog. Other people on her list of Bigfoot bloggers interviewed were Guy Edwards, who runs Bigfoot Lunch Club, and Sharon Lee of The Bigfoot Field Reporter.
Here's what she wrote about Bigfoot Evidence blog (And yes, I do sleep with my laptop):
Bigfoot Evidence is dubbed as the “World’s Only 24/7 Bigfoot News Blog”. And, it’s hopping.
The blog has become like a second job, says owner Shawn, “I sleep with my laptop. Seriously.”
Shawn started Bigfoot Evidence as way to document what he learned about Bigfoot. As a game developer (he withholds his last name for to business reasons), he had an idea for a Bigfoot game and began to research the subject. Having considered both the skeptical literature and the work of the current research community, Shawn remains interested in hearing from both sides.
He says his audience is important, “I made it a mission to show people what I’ve learned. I realized the 99.9 percent of the population were like me and they are just curious about the subject.”
Heavy on graphics and inclusive of a broad range of stories not only about Bigfoot but also science news items and some tidbits that are just culturally interesting, BE is updated multiple times a day.
Shawn puts all stories out there, even the outrageous ones. His goal is to document it all; readers can come to their own opinions about what’s worth their interest or not.
