After far too long dormant, MuddlePuddle is going to come live again. What started as an early years website, specifically aimed at 0-8’s, is still doing a great job but it got old and tired and we stopped updating it. In that time, the internet has grown and changed into something far more remarkable, with great resources for kids and their parents. I thought it was time to refresh the whole thing, make it easier to edit and, while keeping the best of the old content, replenish it with some new.
Here at MuddlePuddle Central, things have moved on too; Pud, the original MuddlePuddle chick, will shortly be 12, Moo is now 10 and Splat is nearly 8. But we still have a 5 year old, who never managed to get a MuddlePuddle name. Grumps would possibly be appropriate.
We hope you’ll enjoy the new content; our plan is to keep all the Early Years stuff in one place but add some older age group resources too so that it remains relevant to our family.
This rebuild is in memory of our beautiful boy, Freddie 2/4/10-13/4/10, who was due the day after i finished the recreation of this site. Born 2nd April and lived for 11 short days before slipping away from us.
Night night, sweet little son. You were so much wanted.
How the Edit will work.
For now i have moved lots of content on to the new system, just as it was and very roughly, with the associated problems of dead links and mixed up formatting. A great deal needs updating, correcting and perhaps even removing. What i plan to do is work through, adding links from the green bar to pages which are 2010 correct. If the link only appears in the sidebars, it is old content awaiting an update. Hopefully doing it this way will keep it organised and inspire me to add new content too.
