In this episode:
It’s been 10 years since Patrick’s very first blog post at BigSeance.com!
“In 2012, my small paranormal investigation team had been out and about for 2 years, I would soon be inspired by Sarah Estep to do my own EVP experiments at home, and I was about 3 years into my spiritual shift that you hear me talk about often. I had just taken a channeling class where I met my spirit guide, Merlin. And I was binging every book on paranormal and spiritual topics that I could get my hands on! I was also binging every episode of both The Ghost Whisperer and Ghost Hunters. I needed a place to share my thoughts on this new journey, and I had TONS of them! Blogging was all the rage, and so on February 5th 2012, I wrote my very first blog post at BigSeance.com. It was very short, but it was about spirit guides. And looking back at this post, you can tell that I had already been marinating in books about mediumship and the Other Side, referring to the Other Side as Home, and I capitalized ‘Other Side' and ‘Home'.” :50
Patrick's first blog post on February 5th, 2012, was about Spirit Guides. 2:20
“That was 10 years ago today. In some ways, it feels like yesterday, but at the same time it kind of feels more like 30 years ago, especially when I read my thoughts from that time.”
The all-time top blog post at BigSeance.com is a post about Being Able to Read in Your Dreams. To this day that post is visited by someone in the world almost every single day. The popularity of the post later inspired episode 66 of the podcast. 3:28
The all-time most popular search terms that people Googled before landing at BigSeance.com have something to do with Andrea Perron or the Perron family. The real life experiences of the Perron family inspired the Conjuring films. Andrea Perron was a guest on the Big Seance Podcast in episode 98. Another popular search term that led people here is, oddly enough, Thomas Edison or his invention, the phonograph. And as you’d expect, there are several variations of, “What does it mean if I can read in my dreams?” 3:50
“After blogging almost every single day for two years, I began producing and hosting the Big Seance Podcast. Over the past 10 years I’ve met so many fascinating people, and even some of you, my listeners! And there’s no way to measure how much I’ve learned and grown.” 4:28

Number 2! The second most popular episode of the Big Seance Podcast is one of Patrick's favorites – Episode 147 with the late Barb Huyser, who passed only 8 months ago.
