What sad news.  I am new to wedding planning and I came across the weddingbee website and love it. 

 Who is going to help me with random diy things that I have no clue about? ahhhh?  

 The best part is that I get to add new blogs to my google reader.  I still love the site and i’m just going to wait and see what happens.

 Visit a beginner bride at gnatyduj.blogspot.com 

I hope not too many things change, I love reading about all your lives/weddings/rants/and diys.

I’ve kind of left the hive months ago, and don’t know if anyone remembers me (11 month wedding anniversary today!) but here’s my lifeblog: http://www.intoourlife.blogspot.com

 Hope to read you all soon.

I created a list of all the blogs that have been listed so hopefully we can all stay updated on one another.  I also listed screennames along with the links so that we know who is who from our weddingbee boards.  Let me know if I left anyone out, I will gladly add you.

  • Wedding: October 2007 - Ceremony at a cement and stained glass cathedral and reception at a boutique hotel ballroom

I am an old, married bee with my one year anniversary approaching next month. I’m mostly done writing, minus two recaps left, so if anyone is interested in my craft blog, you can find me here: http://www.thesunsethouse.com

thenewmrsw, I see your point and I think it’s a compelling one — why should we let eHarmony mess with such a great community?  Why not stay and continue to make Weddingbee a place where gay and lesbian weddings are celebrated?

But for me there’s a financial counterargument.  Every time I click on Weddingbee now, eHarmony will make money.  That makes me uncomfortable.  And for the bloggers, every time they write a post, they are attracting more readers who make money for eHarmony.  In essence, these wonderful bloggers are volunteering their time to make money for eHarmony.  Yes, they’re getting other things out of being here (support from the community, a chance to have their blog more widely read), but it’s still volunteer work for a corporation that practices policies they don’t believe in.

I haven’t decided whether to keep reading just yet.  I’m still conflicted between wanting to keep Weddingbee diverse and LBGT-supportive vs. not wanting to make money for eHarmony.  But if anyone is interested, my blog is brideinexile.blogspot.com.

on a side note, guys… i’ve thinking of moving my wedding planning blog over to a new server that i’m more familiar with navigating (and is compatible with Safari) for a while now… so my blog might not be on http://xanga.com/Zombiebride anymore in a few weeks. 

if i end up doing this, i’ll post the new blog on the previous one. if you want to keep in touch through xanga, go right ahead. i won’t be deleting my account since i still do enjoy using it.

 i’ve already posted it before, but you can also reach me through my other non-wedding related blogs: http://www.prettypoopie.com and http://www.rantingonzero.com 

see you around!

I too am conflicted.  Do we fight the man from within or boycott from outside?  I’m not sure which will help in the long run, but I do want to see what happens for now.

I’ve only been following WB for a few months, but I’ve loved reading everyone’s posts and comments and reading the message boards.  It was refreshing to read messages where there weren’t personal attacks and truly everyone wanted to help each other out.

Anyways, to read my adventures (in wedding planning and life), please go to http://www.junage.blogspot.com

The reasons for leaving take over the reasons for staying. This is bittersweet, although this is just a wedding blog, at some point you start feeling like a family member sorta. We cannot influence on the decisions Mrs. Bee makes, all we have left is to wish her well in all her endeavours and take that much needed vacation!

 Thank you so very much for creating Weddingbee.

 

I am over at  http://weshallwed.blogspot.com/

Feel free to stop by.
