I’m Back!

October 3rd, 2008 Zan Posted in Site News No Comments »

As you’ve probably noticed I haven’t had an update for almost two weeks. I’ve been in Alaska, where I was born and raised, for my girlfriend’s sister’s (a little mouthfull) wedding and I broke my laptop.

I’m back in Oregon now and the daily updates will continue. Thanks for sticking it out.

New Layout!

June 26th, 2008 Zan Posted in Site News No Comments »

Its been brought to my attention lately that rather than posting my single favorite story for the day with an opinion, readers would like a smattering of them. I’m going to try it for a while and we’ll see how it goes. As I’m pretty busy these days (trying to make some cash to get back to Alaska by Fall) the down side to many stories is the lack of my opinion some days. So stay tuned!

Because of this I will be throwing the pictures on the individual pages, but not on the homepage so the stories take less room and you can more easily browse the headlines. If you’d like the picture simply click ‘read the rest of this entry’ link (or whatever it says :) ).

Back To The Internet

May 17th, 2008 Zan Posted in Site News No Comments »

Well, I’m not back in Alaska yet but I am in Oregon for a while to recharge my wallet and again will have regular access to internet, so look forward to daily updates. For the last couple of months I traveled California, Oregon, Washington, Nevada, Utah, Idaho, and Wyoming. When I head out again I will be taking a laptop with me, so you should be able to get your offbeat news on a regular basis.

If you haven’t noticed I have been away for a while now and unable to update the site. I’m currently in Santa Cruz and will be heading to Wyoming in a few weeks, will try for some updates then.

Offbeat News 

Since AdSense has been performing poorly on this blog and I need to pay my hosting bill this month (bought a new truck so I’m kind of poor) I will be posting affiliate style blog posts one per day for the duration of the month. If there is something you’d like to buy write a comment and I’ll throw it up so you can help support Offbeat News, thanks.

New Style

You may notice I have been away for a while. I am restyling this blog a bit, from now on you will find my reaction to each story with a link to it. This will hopefully inspire more comments so I can see what types of stories y’all would like to read.
