Quick Update

 Life and personal stuff pushed out my time for WYR (this web site), but I'm still here.  I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and are looking forward to good stuff for 2024.  You may laugh as you read this, and maybe even think I'm being a bit of a drama queen, but I've really been going through some emotional "stuff" - particularly after I posted that first bit in the Memoirs.  

Like all things in life, there was so much good about WhuddleWorld, but there were things about those years that were also quite dark, uncomfortable and very unhappy for myself, the team and by extension family, friends and supporters of WhuddleWorld.  It's a shame that those things happened and the intent of this blog, was to tell _both_ sides of that story.  However, while it may be cathartic for me (and I'm not even sure of that anymore), I wonder if it wouldn't sort of pollute the memory of the original WhuddleWorld overall.  I mean, the truth is what we created - from 2004-2007, was wonderfully playful, fun and full of hopeful intentions.  Maybe it's best to leave that be its memory.

There have only been a few hundred visits each month since I started this blog (which is fine, I wasn't expecting a lot more than that to be honest) - but I'm hoping there are enough of you that might care to leave a comment and tell me what you think.  Should I delve into the backstory of WhuddleWorld and its creators, etc.  Or should I just post fun memories and images from the site at its best?  Let me know...

In the meantime, something a little less intense.  I thought I'd share some banners we used  - these were created by Elder Kaitler
