That’s right. It’s Cuddlebuggery’s 6 month anniversary! To celebrate this momentous occasion, I’d like to share a little story on how Cuddlebuggery started as told pour moi.
It feels like only yesterday when I posted a little message on Kat’s GoodReads profile saying, “Kat, you and I should start a group blog. We’d be awesome. XD”, which she ignored for weeks.
It was an accident! -Kat
The heifer. She had me worrying. Did I come off too pushy? Desperate? Was I not cool enough? Was my use of the emoticon coming off a little too aggressive? What was I thinking? I probably shouldn’t have even sent that message. *despair*
Finally, she replied back to me with a simple, “Ah, Stephanie! I didn’t see your post there! We could have, that would have been awesome.” Lies. I mean, what did that even mean? Was that a yes? Maybe? No, she was just trying to let me down easy without hurting my feelings
I was. – Kat
Then one morning I woke to find Kat had sent me a message saying, “Just want you to know that I totally regret not taking you up on the joining together of the blogging prowess now. I really, really should have.” This pleased the Dark Mistress and I replied, “It is not to late! We could still be awesome together…” Now what Kat doesn’t know is that I started partying super hard after that. I whipped my hair back and forth. I Hammer Timed. Then I did a mean-ass solo on my air guitar.
Combining forces with Kat was one of the best decisions of my blogging career (mine too! -Kat), but we knew we were missing something. After all, we were kicking out a posts almost everyday. Our husbands were getting lonely. Something had to be done! And that is when we put up the call for another co-blogger. We were nervous about the endeavor because we were both HIGHLY protective of the Cuddlebuggery brand, but imagine our surprise when our good friend, Adam Archer, applied. Not only did he write great reviews and host original, fun, creative posts on his own blog, but we felt he was the perfect fit for Cuddlebuggery. We were so happy! We shared virtual hugs and tears! We’d found our missing link!
You mean VIKING!
So I can’t believe it’s only been 6 months. In just a short amount of time we reached over 100,000 visitors and over 200,000 page views. That’s insane!
