This Year's Participants


If you want to know which houses are giving out the good candy this year, then look no further than the list below. Remember when you stop by to say thank you by leaving them a comment for all the hard work they've put into making Halloween the greatest holiday of the year.

All sites are listed alphabetically. Keep checking back as updates will be made all month long. It's never too late to join in. Just let us know who would like to be included and send us a link to your blog(s) that you'd like to have included.

IMPORTANT NOTE TO PARTICIPANTS: It's nice to see a lot of new faces this year as long as many returning participants. If you don't see yourself on this list, or would like a blog added, removed, or renamed on this list. Please leave a note in the comments section below. Also, please check the comments section here and see if we had problems adding your blog. Every effort was made to contact everyone who participated last year, but a number of last year's participants did not have any contact information attached to their blogs. To simplify things for next year, I'm asking each of you to email me (universalrobots@aol.com) with "Halloween Countdown" in the subject line. Please include a link to your blog. This way I'll be sure to have everyone's emails for next year and no one will be overlooked.

Now that that's out of the way it's time to put on your masks and start trick or treating. Happy Halloween!

Steve Ring said...

I posted every day last year but that's going to be tricky this time. It'll be a cinch posting to my Tumblr everyday but I'm liable to miss a few days on my regular blog. The coffin races aren't until the 30th this year, so that won't be much help.

The Groovy Agent said...

Ol' Groove is in, as always.


suzanne said...

Wow! It's going to be a busy month! :)

Shawn Robare said...

Steve - No worries, I think missing days is sort of like a nice hand drawn picture with some flubs rather than an immaculate computer drawing that's stiff with no flubs. Organic and human, and preferred!

Groovy - Added you!

HS - Yes. Yes it is!

John Rozum said...

Steve, The point is to have fun, not stress yourself keeping up daily posts. If I didn't start putting mine together in July, I'd never make it, and this year I'm not sure I will).

On that note, HS, it took me until Spring to work my way through everyone's countdowns. It was nice to do it at a leisurely pace that way where I actually got to look at everything, rather than to quickly jump in and leave. It can be just as stressful trying to read every blog every day, as it is to post every day. The only downside is I didn't really leave many comments, since who wants to get any for their Halloween work, in March?

Wings1295 said...

Quite an awesome list! Happy October, all!

Chad Thorson said...

You can count me in this year!

Shawn Robare said...

Wings - Yes sir, it's pretty cool this year!

Atom Kid - Sure thing!

Rev. Dr. said...

I have so much to read this month...

Anonymous said...

Tales to Astonish is back for the season: http://nineteenthirtynine.net

Carrie Mae said...

Awesome! I'll be participating, but I forgot to ask to be added to the list. :)


I so love this countdown! Looking forward to all the posts.

George Van Orsdel said...

Hey don't forget me!!


I'm participating in the countdown, just like last year! It's gonna be another spooktacular Halloween Season!

Shawn Robare said...

Retropolitan, Carrie, and George - You've been added to the list and sidebar!

Dr. Rev. Potato - I think I might have reading for the whole year!

Derek M. Koch said...

I'm definitely participating this year!


Shawn Robare said...

Derek - You're on the list. Can't wait to hear your podcast!

Mark Brett said...

Count us in up on the Dork 40:


Gonna try to post something every day, even if it's only a picture. Looking forward to the marathon!

Bubbashelby said...

As if prepping the posts each day isn't time consuming enough - now I have hours and hours of blog reading time to squeeze somewhere into my busy lifestyle.

Who am I kidding, I have no life.

Blog on!


The Artful Gypsy aka Wendy the Very Good Witch said...

Thank you for all the effort you put into this each year...what a great way to spend the month of October....with all the other Halloween lovers out there! Let the fun begin! :o)

Shawn Robare said...

Mark - You're on the list!

Eric - I think we're all in the same boat...

Wendy - No problem, it's going to be a crazy month!

Adam Gott said...

Cool-Mo-Dee will be in (of course).


Casket Case said...

You've already pretty much doubled my readership. I don't know if that's the saddest thing ever or if your network of fiends is just that awesome. Thanks a ton, and thanks to everyone who's stopped by the blog. I know I just found the Mother lode for my Halloween needs.

Shawn Robare said...

Adam - Cool-M-Dee has been added to the updated list!

CC - Exposure is one of the aims of the Countdown site for sure!

Michael Jones said...

Say bro, I don't seem to be on your list (even though I've made it apparent in the past.)
Please rectify.
Looking forward to it!

Shawn Robare said...

Forehead slap! Sorry Michael, don't know how I missed you! Crap, rectifying this post haste...

Myra @ Hot Costumes Blog said...

Hi, Shawn:

I'm in as well, as a newbie. I have a blog but plan on creating a Tumblr/Posterous as I update these more.

Can't wait. Boo Hoo!


Adam Gott said...

The Vintage Postcard Blog will also be participating:


John Rozum said...

Myra, you've been added to the list.

UniversalHorror said...

Add me also...I wasn't sure if I'd be able to keep up with the race this year, but figured out what I will be doing this time around (and hopefully preparing in advance so they post on their own each day).


UniversalHorror said...

....and here's a Halloween treat for you, John, based on the Scary Spooky Stories cover you have up here for this blog post of the countdown list. I animated it. :-)


You can add a little pizazz to this list by replacing the still image with the animated one (if you want to). I might toss this up on my blog, but won't do so until after you decide how you want to use it here (or not).

Dartman said...

Don't forget about the World of Wonder!! - Dartman


Crystal said...

Could you please add me? I hope it's not too late - I'm planning to have a great countdown with lots of freebies! Thanks!

Thank you for putting together this list. If you could, please add Digital Meltd0wn to the list. I'll be posting a slew of Halloween/horror music, comics, audiobooks, old radio shows, and anything else I can think of.


Shawn Robare said...

Alright, everyone up to this point has been added!

Mag said...

And here I thought I had an original idea. Anyway, the Comic Treadmill is attempting a Halloween countdown, if it's not too late to join:


Unknown said...

Trick Or Blog will be participating again this year. Please include a link to my blog.


Happy Haunting!

John Rozum said...

Both of you have been added to the list.

Myra said...

Hi, John or Shawn:

I want to link to all the sites and blogs above, can you please send me the HTML so I can copy and paste to my article announcing the Halloween Countdown?

You can send it to me via the contact form on my blog.


p.s. I would really appreciate it.

Shawn Robare said...

Hey Myra, I sent you the list...

I've been doing an H-Day countdown for the past few years, but didn't know about this collection of cool pages until recently. It's a great idea for the holiday season. Please include my blog too if it's not too much trouble. Thanks.

This is just a fabulous idea! I just discovered it this year and luckily was already planning a daily feature. I've been having a blast discovering everyone else's sites and blogs. Great work and thank you!

Clarabelle said...

I would love to be added to the list :)

needadvice said...

I've only just found out about this, over a week into the month. :( Nevertheless, if you'd still have me, I'd love to be a part of your blog collective and have made my own countdown blog just for the occasion: http://silentfilmmonsters.blogspot.com/

Shawn Robare said...

Clarabelle & Henwich - You're on the list!

Rook Wilder said...

Is it too late to get in on this wonderful idea?
Perhaps I can get in next year. I have had a look and there are some great blogs involved. I am most impressed.

Mark said...

Ah crap, I forgot to add myself again. I'm here:

Shawn Robare said...
