Hi folks

This is the second Storybud newsletter.

Storybud is a childrens story website with all your favourite stories

Classics, legends, folklore and much more.

Here you will find what's happening on storybud...plus a few more bits and 

www.storybud.org <http://www.storybud.org> 

some revamps on Storybud,thanks to your comments.

1 easier to find your story.

The site is undergoing another revamp.

Some of you using screen magnifiers but who do not have speech software 
commented that it is hard to see the links of the stories.

This is being resolved...slow process though...soon you will see the title 
of the story as a heading with the link to that story right underneath it.

2 scrolling through your category choice.

Previously if you choose a category for example stories a to d, all the 
stories in that category came up on the page that appeared.

Some of you mentioned that you were scrolling at breakfast, had your lunch 
and dinner, and then continued scrolling!!!

In future the list of stories in the category will only show about ten 
stories on the page...and then below them you can click on page 2 etc in 
that category.

3 here is some of the new content on site

audio stories
