Amelia And I Are Getting Married

Hi. I’m really pleased to announce some pretty exciting and, for some, unexpected news. Amelia McDonell-Parry, the lead editor of The Frisky, and I, Susannah Breslin, who regularly contributes to this site in ways myriad, are getting married.

Some of you, readers and coworkers alike, may be surprised by this announcement. Amelia and I have kept things pretty secret — working together and dating has its complications — and if you know our writing, you know that both of us have really struggled with dating and being single. In a way, though, that’s what brought us together. A love of the written word and long work hours threw us together, so to speak, one thing led to another, and I won’t bore you with the details, but, to put it simply, we’re in love. And getting married. Not tomorrow. Not soon. But eventually. That’s our plan for a life spent together. Granted, that’ll be a little complicated in a day and age when being the same sex makes marrying one another practically illegal, but it’s important to us that we make a public commitment that symbolizes how we feel about each other.

So! We’re not registered yet, but we’ll let you know when we are. We’re not going to get totally overshare-y with you, we promise, but I know Amelia’s already working on a Girl Talk about us and how we came to be. We hope you’ll follow us on our trip to the altar. Amelia may be wearing the dress, but I think I’ll be the luckiest girl in the room. [Love you, A!] Keep reading »

Little Boy Reduced To Tears Because He’s Not A Single Lady


Reposting now that we’ve found an embed link that works!

The other day, we were all dancing around The Frisky offices with “Single Ladies” on blast, and then Wendy was like, “Hey, Amelia, you’re not a single lady,” even though she is, and then Amelia, well, her reaction was the same as the kid in this video. So, we had to reassure her that, yes, she was a single lady, and then she was like, “OK!” and she got happy again, and we all went back to dancing between uploading posts. Did I mention that I love my job? Afterward, we felt like bad parents, but then everybody ate cupcakes, and everything was fine. ‘Nother day at the office, kids. [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

Update: Frisky Community Changes

A short while ago, we released some refinements to The Frisky’s community tools that were introduced on Wednesday. We want to thank all of you for your valuable and spirited (sometimes apoplectically so!!!) feedback – it was very helpful. It heartens us to know that so many of you can get so hot and bothered over our little site! After the jump, a summary of the changes (and what’s still to come) … Keep reading »

Weigh In On The Frisky’s Community Updates

As you may have noticed, yesterday we rolled out the first phase of a four-phase plan to give you, our beloved users, expanded features and tools to interact with each other and contribute to The Frisky in new and deeper ways. In this first phase, we replaced the old comments and profiles system.

Yes, we know the new system has been agonizingly slow at times and still has some bugs to be squashed. Hard though it may be for some of you to believe, we find this more annoying than you do. We’re working hard to improve things, and want very much to get your feedback. After the jump, an overview of changes, tweaks still to come — and your input, please.

Call Us What You Will: The Frisky Staff’s Nicknames

We here at The Frisky spend most of our time working away deep inside the blogging mines, unearthing the best webternet content we can find. It’s not easy. But someone has to do it! And that is us. Occasionally, we do take the time to have a good time, and every good time, as everyone knows, involves a nickname. For example, in high school: I was very tall. And people called me Big Bird. Did I like that? Well, no. Or, should I say, maybe? A nickname is a sign of endearment, so if you want to know what to call Amelia next time you see her rocketing down the sidewalk, your handy guide is after the jump. Keep reading »

Meet The Frisky Crew At Work!

Hey! The other day I brought my camera to the Frisky offices, and I took some pictures! Would you like to meet some of the Frisky editorial team? Of course you would!

First up, we have Amelia. If this site came from a womb, it was Amelia’s. [And now I am barren. Kidding! -- Editor] She is our lead editor and fearless leader. One time she told me that she rules with an iron glove clutching a bouquet of flowers. Or something like that. [Iron fist of flowers, actually.] Whatever that means, it works. Meet more of the Frisky ladies after the jump! Keep reading »
