"Muppet Newsflash" Replaces "GelflingWaldo Files"

As many of you know, I started this blog back in February. The small and casual project grew and flourished into the place to find all the greatest and latest Muppet, Fraggle, Sesame, and Henson news on the web. When I started out I had no real idea what this blog would be, and what it would ultimately become. After three months, I feel that the site had evolved to a level that I had not considered when starting the little project. The 100+ days working on The GelflingWaldo Files were educational and allowed me to learn what works (and what does not work).

But to respond to the needs of the blog (and the visitors) I decided to rework the project to a level that met the nature that the blog emerged to need. So I created a new blog; a replacement blog. This new blog, called “The Muppet Newsflash” is similar to The GelflingWaldo Files in many ways. Not only does it have the same blogmaster, but it will hold all the latest and greatest Muppet/Henson related news - that includes The Muppets, Sesame Street, Fraggle Rock, and the dozens of other shows, movies, specials, and properties spawned from the mind, the magic, and legacy of Jim Henson. I will continue to dig up and compile all the news that Muppet-fans crave. This new blog, like its predecessor, will be the definitive source for Muppet news on the web.

Aside from a new name there are some changes in the format, the dogma, and the look – but the heart is the same of The GelflingWaldo Files. Since I am “moving” to the new blog, the GelflingWaldo Files will no longer be updated. The site will remain (for some time) for historical and reference purposes, but all new news will be on the new blog.

Be sure to check out the new home for great breaking Muppet news! And also don’t forget to update your bookmarks to reflect the new blog’s URL. Remember, it’s the same great news just with a new name. I hope you enjoy!
