Throughout the three-and-a-half years that I've worked on Offbeat Mama and then Offbeat Families, I have consistently struggled with two editorial tasks: headlines and intro paragraphs. I think it's pretty appropriate that I wrote the body of this post first, then the headline and then the opening paragraph. Basically, guys, this is going to be happy/sad, easy/hard.
This is Offbeat Families's archive of Site news posts.
Site announcements, news, and other administrativey stuff.

(We love RSS forever, but we've decided to stop using Feedblitz.) And for those of you on Tumblr, we're now syndicating all the Offbeat Empire's blog posts to http://offbeatempire.tumblr.com.

We're gearing up for a party in Seattle, which is exactly TWO WEEKS from today! You should totally come…
Do you have 5 minutes to tell us how make Offbeat Families better?
The Offbeat Empire's 2012 reader survey is open to ALL readers of ANY Offbeat Empire site: offbeatbride.com, offbeatfamilies.com, offbeathome.com, and offbeatempire.com. We've designed the survey to be pretty quick, although part of that depends on how many of the Offbeat Empire blogs you read. Regardless, it shouldn't take more than 5-10 minutes for anyone.
After months of deliberation and many hours of behind-the-scenes technical lever-pulling, button-pressing, server re-configuring, and graphic redesigning, we are officially relaunched under our new name: OFFBEAT FAMILIES!
This shift to our new name should NOT have any technical impact on readers, regardless of how you follow our posts…
ere it is: Thanksgiving in the US, and time to hop on the Love Train Express and pull into Appreciation Station. We try to remain grateful and appreciative of the Offbeat Empire's readers every day in every way, but on Thanksgiving we all wanted to try to find the way to articulate just how thankful we are for every single one of you.
