Introducing Chesapeake Family LIFE

CFL LIFE Blue 300Dear Readers and Longtime Friends:

Something exciting is happening at Chesapeake Family and it’s all for you. We’re making the best even better. We’re changing our name and expanding our reach.

As of January 2017 we will be Chesapeake Family LIFE. This change reflects our recent growth and new focus on broader aspects of family life: topics for the grown-ups in the family who are people first, and parents second.

In response to your interests and demands, we have expanded our content to include more topics that go beyond parenting, such as events worth hiring a babysitter for, food and dining ideas, home and garden, and other areas of interest to moms and dads.

This expansion is a natural growth of your needs and who we are. A lot has changed in the 26 years since I started the business, first called Chesapeake Children. In 1996 it was clear our editorial topics had moved beyond little kids to broader parenting topics. We changed our name to Chesapeake Family. We also added specialty annual guides like the BIG Book of Education, events, e-newsletters, social media and a website that now averages 65,000 monthly visitors. That’s huge, and it makes the most visited local website in the area.

Realizing that your information-gathering habits have changed, we have made it our business to excel at using social media, print, web and e-newsletters to reach moms and dads wherever they are looking for information. We now reach over 200,000 parents every month when print and digital is combined.

As we become Chesapeake Family LIFE, we will continue to provide the award-winning content you count on, covering health, education and fun for families, but with a section specifically for moms and dads whose lives include more than their children.
