Hello everyone, thank you for taking the time to visit this page. If you are here, it could only mean one thing - you're a fan of Supernatural Confessions (SC), or you like ghost stories.
I've had many thoughts in my head over the past many years and some of them were really mind-blowing if I could say so myself, but I never really told anyone, so they remained mostly in my head. If I had documented them, I bet they make for good reading.
I thought that since we have this platform now, and I'd like to think that many of you were would be interested in the things that went on behind the scenes of Supernatural Confessions, I've decided to use the platform as a way to air my thoughts and for you to get a peek behind the curtains at how and why things are done the way they are at Supernatural Confessions.
You might have noticed that SC has revamped itself at the start of the year and that is by design. We have come a long way since our humble beginnings, and I intend to say true to the original vision and mission. At this juncture, I feel certain names need to be mentioned and recognised for SC's current place in the universe. In chronological order - Jane Franklin, Grace Chai, Tim Oh, Alvin de Cruz, Eugene Toh (ET), Janan, Jonathan Lim, Cici, Sonia Khurana, Melvin, Wayne, Manesh, Joachim "Kim" Then, Joseph de Cotta, Cara, Lynn, Ivan, Bill and Matt. Honourable mention: Joel, Alan, KK, Ericsson, Cinzia, ZP Matt, Ray, Desmond, Esther, Ariel, Hermant, Kathy, Linda, Mark, Shi Min, Carlos, Oliver, Jun Hao, Kimberly, Marc, and many others.
We started off with just my iPhone 5, a pen and notepad. The mission was simple - everyone who has had a paranormal encounter should have a safe space to tell their story without being ridiculed. The place is Supernatural Confessions.
We grew, and we grew, and we grew, organically. No click baits, no buying subscriber count, no blitz strategy. We just kept doing what we promised to do. And we couldn't have done it without you.
At the start of this year, I found myself at a crossroad. Real life was getting hectic - a man must be able to put food on the table, after all. Running Supernatural Confessions was taking up as much time as my day job, if not more. I had a decision to make: let SC ride into the sunset and perhaps die a silent death, or make a choice to shift my attention away from the grind of a day job and focus my efforts into SC to take it to a professional level.
I met Tim Oh for teh-and-eggs at Ya Kun one morning and shared my vision with him.
"You always had big dreams for SC," he said. "Even from way back, I just wanted it to remain as a podcast, but you wanted to do live stream and more. I'm happy for you."
"Dreams come with a price tag, Tim," I replied, stirring my teh c kosong.
"Yes, and that's why if anyone can do it for SC, it would be you, and it's not something you could just sub out to just about anyone to do it. SC is you; you are SC."
"SC needs to continue with or without me."
"Are you ready to let it go?"
"I'll set it up proper, then at some point the community will have to take it over. New leadership, new ideas, but the mission doesn't change."
"Then you have your answer."
And that was the defining line that made me decide to drop everything and go pedal-to-the-metal with Supernatural Confessions.
Well, we'll see how this year goes. And you, my friends, get the front row seats to witnessing either the greatest transformation of SC, or the most painful crush-and-burn of Eugene Tay.
