Back in 2008, I started three little websites for my three kids – AnimalJr.com for my oldest animal lover, SpaceJr.com for my sci-fi lover, and FantasyJr.com for my little princess wannabe. The sites grew immediately and rapidly. Within 2 months I had to move to a better dedicated server to handle all the traffic. Soon CraftJr.com and ClassroomJr.com were added. And within a couple of years, I was earning enough to allow my husband to quit his job and pursue his dream of opening a boat marina.
But as the separate sites grew and evolved, I found that having group of separate sites was becoming very difficult to maintain. Compounding the problem was the fact that the design and functionality of all these sites was stuck in 2008. As 2015 rolled around, for many technical reasons not worth explaining, I realized I needed to revamp the Woo! Jr. Kids Activities Network in a major way. And the best way to do that was to consolidate them all into one place.
So I’m a little sad to say goodbye to all of our sister sites, but SO EXCITED about all the new changes and content planned for 2015!
- From now on you won’t have to search 5 different sites for our great free content – it’s all right here on WooJr.com!
- Our site is now more mobile and tablet friendly!
- You can now pin our posts to Pinterest right from the home page or category pages – we know how much you love Pinterest!!
- And coming very soon is a new Woo! Jr. YouTube channel! SQUEE!
We aren’t moving everything all at once – expect a little dust as we close down the sites over the next month or so. But don’t worry. ALL of your OLD BOOKMARKS will still work. We are putting extensive measures into place to ensure that all of the old content URLs will be redirected to exactly the right place on the new site. But if you can’t find something you used to use on our old sites, please drop us a line and we will get back to you ASAP to help you find what you need.
Now is a GREAT time to hit us up with your content requests, too! Many of our worksheets and projects were suggested by our readers (especially teachers and homeschooling parents). Leave a comment if you want us to create something you can use in your classroom and we’ll get working on it for you!
