So Elyse and I recently went hunting online, discovered that was available, and snagged it.  This is the result:

Woomy's website, as it currently stands

Yes, Woomy, our curmudgeonly little octopus, now has his very own rudimentary little website.  I suppose that it’s proof that (A) Elyse and I do occasionally share one brain amongst the both of us, and (B) we should not be trusted with a credit card on the Internet, because we do things like order domains and make websites for our critters.

Unsurprisingly, when we showed it to Woomy, he just said, “I don’t like that!”

In any case, now that I have this new domain and this website, and I might as well have some fun with it.  Right now, Woomy’s website is just a one-pager, i.e. something I created in five minutes just to have something there.  But there is so much more that could be done to explore Woomy’s world.  After all, he’s a grumpy octopus, with a small body and a big mouth.  I’ve thought about going two ways with this, with both taking the form of a blog.  One is to blog as Woomy, using his very limited vocabulary, as the only thing that he says is, “I don’t like that!”  In that case, I would put a heavy emphasis on photos of Woomy with various things in order to make up for the lack of words.  The other is to write about Woomy’s adventures as an outside observer, and his dislike of the various things in his environment.  In either case, it could be fun.

What do you think that I should do with Woomy’s new website?  Leave a comment and let me know!
