Today’s post is going to be a little different as today is a very special day in my book. Exactly two years ago, I sat down at my laptop, went to WordPress.com, typed in the words “massieblocklove”, and created my blog. As you can all see, I’ve come a long way since my blog read 0 views, 0 comments, and donned a post that said “Welcome to WordPress! This is your first post.”
In the past two years, I have experienced more than I ever thought possible. With my blog came a world that was completely different than my own. WordPress is a place where there are sweet girls, crazy girls, down-to-earth girls, amazingly gorgeous girls, and girls who arrived here because they were a little lost but found this place to be something special. WordPress is the biggest collection of the most random people I have ever met and I have to be honest, I love it.
While I enjoy blogging because I like to write and it’s fun to put together bulletin boards and current state of the unions, I always come back for a bigger reason, a bigger picture. The day I joined I commented on Karen’s Massie Blocks Blog (MBB) and was absolutely shocked when she commented back. I couldn’t believe that someone out there had read what I wrote and actually wanted to welcome me into their world that I knew absolutely nothing about.
The fact that I can hop on here and vent about my life, ask people what they did today, and hear about events that are happening a couple thousand miles away from me is so amazing. While my curiosity of the Clique Roleplaying world brought me here, the beautiful bloggers on WordPress is what kept me here. No matter who I talk to – whether it be on AIM, email, or comments – has always been there for me, a shoulder to lean on when I didn’t have anyone else to talk to.
Whether we were screaming about gossip girls, crying over broken hearts, telling stories about our crazy friends, or trying to guess who “A” is on Pretty Little Liars, I will always love the moments I spent getting to know you girlies.
Most of us were brought here by our fascination of The Pretty Committee and their world. I think I can safely say we don’t all live in mansions, ride around in fabulous cars, have a million best friends, and rule our schools with an iron fist, but I like to think that we could. We all love The Clique for the same reason and I love knowing there are other girls out there who adore inside jokes, lame comebacks, and having someone in the world to share our best and most horrendous moments with.
Massie Block and The Pretty Committee embody what every girl has wanted at some point in her life; gorgeous hair, the largest wardrobe money can buy, a loyal pet to help keep you warm at night, and best friends that stand by your side, thick or thin.
Thank you for helping me step into a world where anything is possible and for making that world absolutely ah-mazing.
My Second Year on WordPress has left me with:
I want to say thank you to all of the girls who brought me here, especially my commenters, viewers, and followers. You are all so amazing and I appreciate how much you all have supported me over the two years that I have been here. It wouldn’t be the same without you.
I’d like to do a tag today in honor of my anniversary! I would love to read your answers so feel free to complete this tag and post it on your blog!
Favorite thing about WordPress: All of the beautiful girlies who blog here.
One thing you’d like to change about WordPress: I wish more people knew about our community. I see so many people role-playing on Facebook and Polyvore when there is a whole group right here!
Favorite thing about blogging on WordPress: I love taking an hour out of my week to make a post, it’s kind of like my designated relaxation time.
Favorite thing to do when you’re not on WordPress: Spending time with my friends, family, boyfriend, and pets. Nothing is better than making memories with people you love.
Favorite website other than WordPress: It’s a tie between Tumblr and Pinterest. Both have a special place in my heart because it’s a display of who I truly am, but with an array of pictures (:
Favorite memory of your time on WordPress: There are soooo many so I’m going to give a couple. 1) The day I started my blog/the day I chatted on AIM for the first time. 2) The day everyone was added to the WordPress Chat Room. Hilarity ensued. 3) The day(s) I posted the winners of The WordPress Awards. I absolutely loved seeing everyone’s excited reactions.
Lastly, I would like to say a special thanks to the following girls who have helped me make so many of those special memories.
AliciaRiveraHeartsYou: You’re absolutely amazing. You fall into the can’t-live-without-and-will-never-not-be-able-to-laugh-when-we-talk category. Without all of your support over the past year, I don’t think I’d still be here. You are so up-front and so hilarious, I can’t even believe it. If we were friends in real life, we would cause so much hell, no one would be able to handle us. Stay true to yourself because your personality is absolutely beautiful.
LovelyMassieBlock: You are seriously the nicest girl I have ever met. You are always so helpful, so sweet, and you truly have the best intentions. I love how you try so hard to be nice and courteous to everybody and can still stay true to yourself. Your blog is absolutely amazing and I love how far you’ve grown on here. Having you co-host OCDO with me has been so much fun, I love knowing that when I eventually leave WordPress, you’ll do an amazing job carrying on it’s legacy.
OfficialAuroraBlake: Our talks on AIM have always reminded me of the reason I love WordPress. Because you are so up-front with your feelings, I love talking with you! You’re the kind of friend who will always be honest with me and have my back. I can’t even begin to describe how much that means to me. You are so hilarious and so amazing, keep up the amazing job on OAB!
GlitterMassieBlock: You have been an amazing blogger ever since you started WordPress and I love looking back to all the hilarious times we’ve had together. Opening up SOTS with you and MKX has been so much fun and oh-so hilarious at times. Thank you for always being there for me doll, there are so many times I would have died without your help!
StyleCrumb: Thank you so much for introducing me to this amazing world. When I found your blog, I fell in love with your writing and unique take on Massie Block. I still think of you as one of the most creative people to ever grace WordPress. I’m glad you’ve returned and I hope that you never leave, you truly have a knack for blogging.
BeautyOnTheBeach: Even though your blog has been deleted, I couldn’t not include you. I love that I have found my twin, even if we are a million miles apart. You are the kind of person I see in my friends, in my self, and in the kind of person I want to be. You are always so true to who you are and that person is so beautiful. You have always been there for me, even when everyone else wasn’t. Thank you for being such an amazing friends all these years, I wouldn’t be here if you hadn’t.
MassieKurX: I’ve loved working on SOTS with you and GMB! I find it so funny we hadn’t spoken until recently but I’ve completely loved getting to know you. You are so hilarious to talk with and I love your sense of humor. You have done such an amazing job with MKX and I hope you keep it up because you are really amazing.
ADayInTheLifeOfNatalie: I always find it so amazing that you’ve been here so long! I remember when I first joined WordPress, you had reached out to me and welcomed me in. I love working on OCDO with you and I love that you are the kind of blogger who is always there for everyone. You truly are so sweet and such a wonderful influence on WordPress. I hope you never change because WordPress couldn’t live without a Natalie.
MissKrisSexySportsBabe: I love that you’re my Kristen and until you joined my Pretty Committee, I never thought I’d be able to actually have PC Chats! I love how dedicated you are and you truly are an amazing blogger. I am so lucky to have you in my Pretty Committee and as my friend.
XOAliciaRivera: I am so excited that you have returned to WordPress! When you left all those months ago, I was so upset because your blog has been always been so fresh and so beautiful. I love that you’re back and I love that we’ve been able to catch up lately. I can’t wait to see how far your blog will go.
XOMB: I never thought you’d become a role-play blogger after all your years of blogging as yourself but I absolutely adore your take on Massie. Your blog is so graceful and so elegant, it fits Massie and your own personality so well. I’m really glad you decided to stick around because WordPress would not be the same without you.
Thank you for making the past two years of my life a little bit sweeter.
Love Always, Kelsey
