Cheers to 10 years! If someone told me how huge the blogger / social media / influencer landscape would be in 2018…I would have totally believed them (obvs).
10 years ago I wrote this post. Midtown Girl was a way of sharing my ‘dating in NYC’ stories with my girlfriends so I could give them updates on my dating life in one place, without having to repeat the same story a million times. Turns out, so many of you could relate to the ups & downs of dating in the city and shared incredible advice & stories in the comments of my “Current Stat” updates.
From my 8/4/2008 post:
“I envision myself somewhere more around the mid-budget arena, that is if I ever have a wedding (which is highly unlikely since I don’t even have a boyfriend at this point).
I would imagine the reception would be in Manhattan since I love it here.”
Fast forward 10 years later – check & check! After an official boyfriend status, confirming Midtown Chap was “the one”, getting engaged, married and now expecting our first child – I can tell you documenting these life experiences have been an amazing way of reflecting on special moments.
I want to thank everyone who has been following Midtown Girl for the last 10 years. I’ve met wonderful people online & IRL and have truly appreciated all the advice, tips & outreach. I’ve seen so many of you become successful through your hard work & hustle – very proud of you dahlings!
Over the next few weeks I’ll be launching a new venture & hope you’ll join me in the journey. Cheers to another 10 years of life, love & style in New York City!
