From the Desk of Stacy:
Huddlenet was created and launched in August of 1999. Originally it was simply a place to gather all the individual websites that were sitting on free hosting sites. The various websites originally contained a collection of wav files, a tribute to POWs and some personal sites (think blogs before blogs).
After gathering all the sites into Huddlenet, the site slowly evolved. It leaned heavily toward holidays and graphics. After five years, I realized that I didn’t really like creating graphics for other people and I wasn’t that into holidays!
I fiddled with a couple of side sites for a few years – fleamarketsim.com and itdoesnotexist.com. fleamarketsims was a fan site for the sims and itdoesnotexist was a fan site for neopets. My interest in the sims waned and that site was trashed. I didn’t have the time to keep up with It Does Not Exist after going back to work.
From 2005 until this year, Huddlenet has stood in a state of limbo. I stopped working in the real world in 2008 due to poor health and have rediscovered the joy of our website. I look forward to expanding & playing with Huddlenet again!
Thanks for reading, Stacy!
