Keeping up with Offbeat Bride: so many ways! #Site News#social media June 2 2009 | Ariel arielmstallings For those of you who don't want to be old fashioned and type offbeatbride.com into your browser window every day, there are now a metric shit-ton of ways to keep up with Offbeat posts: Get your wedding fix tweeted to you via @offbeatbride on Twitter, where Offbeat Intern Megan tweets a link to each post and other interesting tidbits. Keep up by friending OBB on Facebook, with links to each post and little personal updates and gossip from me. For the Feed Reader geeks in the house, there's always RSS. If you've never heard of RSS before, it's awesome and will change the way you read blogs. This video gives you a great introduction. LiveJournal users can follow along on LJ, although sometimes (like today!) posts will get a little mangled by LJ's feed importer. Want to read on your mobile? I can do that!

Fix Typo Ariel Author of the Offbeat Bride book, Ariel acts as the publisher of all the Offbeat Empire websites. She lives in Seattle with her son, and if she's not reading or writing books, chances are good that she's dancing or happy-crying. You can get to know her better on her Insta stories.

Reply Brady, I noticed that when I opened my friends list this morning! LJ syndication sometimes reeeeeally doesn't like certain bits of code in my RSS feed. That said, I can't believe I left LJ off the list! Remedying now…. Reply When do we get an iPhone app or mobile enhanced website? I am always reading on my iPhone at night in bed. Reply Lonie, funny you should ask — there's actually a mobile version of the site available here: http://offbeatbride.mofuse.mobi I set it up a few months ago, but haven't had time to fiddle/promote it. But it's there! I should add it to the list. 🙂 Reply I love having OBB available on LJ! I will never again forget to check it or miss any updates. Thanks, Ariel! My only complaint is the posts are HUGE. LJ doesn't cut the feed at all so everything – all the text and pictures – are on my friends list. Is there a way the posts could be cut on LJ the way they are on OBB? Reply Unfortunately, lj's syndication doesn't give me any control over how the posts display … and it completely ignores the tag that inserts a jump-cut on offbeatbride.com. So, not much I can do. 🙁 Reply Join the conversation Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
