LiveAbout and Dotdash

LiveAbout is a reference site focused on entertainment, activities, and hobbies. We know that time away from the stress of work and responsibilities at home is limited, and we want to help you make the most of those precious hours.

That’s why our coverage is a lovable jumble of urban legends, sports history, and esoteric trivia. Our articles discuss everything from fashion advice to UFO sightings, all so you can make the most of your time off.

For more than 20 years, Dotdash brands have been helping people find answers, solve problems, and get inspired. We are one of the top-20 largest content publishers on the Internet according to comScore, and reach more than 30% of the U.S. population monthly. Our brands collectively have won more than 20 industry awards in the last year alone, and recently Dotdash was named Publisher of the Year by Digiday, a leading industry publication.
