Welcome to the new site!

cleo16

It took a lot of work but now it’s done and I can have a well-deserved rest. I must admit that it took a while to wrap my head around making a responsive site (one that adjusts for phones and iPads) but I blame that on my rapidly ageing brain cells.

This new site has all of the same articles (over 600), and all of the comments carried over. I still have no advertising, and that’s by choice now. My previous site was a bit broken so I couldn’t add ads even if I wanted to.

In my opinion — my very humble opinion — we are absolutely swamped with ads now everywhere on the Internet. They pop in and pop up and ruin my enjoyment of browsing, especially if my speakers are turned up. I for one am tired of being treated as a nothing more than a consumer, and that’s why I won’t treat my readers like that. I appreciate everyone who visits here and reads my rants. I especially appreciate those who leave comments.

Because I’ve spent my time developing this new site, I don’t have a new hellbeast article ready for publishing yet. Thanks for your patience.

    Great new site layout, Cleo! I’m sure it will take all of us “Hellbeasters” to get used to maneuvering around the site, but change can be a good thing! Keeps things fresh and adds a little variety to life!! As you have often stated (as well as some of your faithful readers), it is very sad that a website like this had to be created, because of all of the evil, hellbeastly people that are in this world. I, for one, have the utmost respect for you, Cleo. It takes a special kind of person to be able to read about, research and report these types of people…and their evil deeds. I don’t see how you can stay so positive while reading and researching for this site. I would’ve lost it a LONG time ago. I have 2 children of my own, and when I read your articles (especially the ones about child abuse, child killers, and children in general), I catch myself thinking about what I would do if someone did something horrific to one or both of my children. I weep for these precious children. Your articles make me appreciate my children, my family…they make me realize that I am blessed, and that there are always going to be people out there that are going through way worse than me!! Thank you for caring about these victims, who otherwise would not have a voice without you!! (This also goes for the unidentified John and Jane Does you have reported on, and did facial reconstructions on…you are speaking for them!!) We Hellbeasters appreciate ya! Now, go and enjoy your well-deserved break! :)

    I’ve tried to comment but my comment seems to be lost in cyber space, hopefully it will appear, maybe a few teething problems?

  6. Bengalpuss says:

    Well it seems to have appeared but waiting to be moderated.

  7. Bengalpuss says:

    I like the fact that the comments now have the date and time they were posted, the old site didn’t do that, nice one cleo:-)

    • Jeni C says:

      I agree with you, Bengalpuss. I also like that the date and time of your comments are now displayed. Enjoy your well-deserved break, Cleo!!

  8. NavyVet&Proud says:

    Looks Smart

    Thanks for all the hard work Cleo, I really like your style of writing. Hellbeasts is my favourite crime site, the new format is much better.

    Well done cleo, you have brilliant site and even more praise for the no ads. I used to visit the murderpedia site a lot and now you load the page and ads take off without even touching it. It’s infuriating. Been reading you for a good few years. I’m sure it’s a labour of love but it is truly a brilliant voice for the victims which some sites can forget. It’s heartbreaking to read but every time you and all your writers put pen to paper you’ve helped inform someone else. Enjoy your break and take care.
