The HBA has amassed a huge number of Horror bloggers that are each dedicated to their sites and reviews, which has been a great experience for all of those involved. Unfortunately, this newly united group has not been fully taken advantage of due to a lack of time and availability. One of our staffers has recently lost their primary work computer, while others are entrenched in school and various other writing projects.
As such, we would like to welcome volunteers that are interested in taking over some of the various responsibilities on the HBA, and hopefully enlist a few new dedicated writers that have new ideas for group projects and events to boost morale and create more interlinking features in order to bring HBA members together once again!
Thanks for your contributions, and we look forward to adding a few new faces on the staff,

Once again we have some more horrible happenings going on at a few of our fellow HBA member's blogs, and we are here to share them with you all!
The handsome and fascinating, Matt-suzaka over at Chuck Norris Ate My Baby has a MASSIVE contest/blogathon that was just announced yesterday. It's called the Chuck Norris Ate My Blog Contest, and much like a blogathon, to enter, you have to do some sort of post about anything that is Chuck Norris related between May 24th and May 30th. After that time period, the top three most creative and entertaining posts will be picked as the winners, with one of those winners getting the grand prize and the other two getting the runner-up prizes. So that is three chances to win prizes for the small price of having fun!
Shelly from ShellHawk's Creations has some jack-o-lantern pots for sale on her Etsy site, including some special Raku jackos. They look great and it is never too early to get ideas and new decorations for Halloween!
