(OH MY GOD I CAN MAKE ANIMATED GIFS THE FEATURE IMAGE OMGOMGOMG)
I have some very exciting news to announce!! Drum roll please…
CathinCollege [dot] wordpress [dot] com is now…
(No more “wordpress” in the domain!)
Oh how times have changed… Take a look at Cath in College’s first post on the old blogspot site.
As the one-year anniversary of CiC quickly approaches, I’d like to take a hot second to give a sincere thank you to everyone who has supported me along the way.
A big “Thank You” to…
To Gus Goetze and Lily Moradi, for being the first readers of CiC, even back before it went public. (When we were getting only 12 hits a post!)
To Austin Wu, for helping me through the process of going public.
To DYS, the Stanford d.school and Gabe Wilson for inspiring me to take CiC to the next level and go public.
To Allan Ndovu, for being there after I shared my first public post on Facebook to calm the nerves in his own special way.
According to a journal entry from January 17, “I was freaking out when I pressed that button. I immediately regretted it. I thought I made a huge mistake. But then Allan threatened to slap me and said I had to ‘own that sh*t.’ He said if anybody questions it, I gotta look ’em in the eye and say, ‘f*ck yeah, I did that.’ I immediately felt better.”
To the countless people who have contributed to the blog by letting me feature them and their stories: Benji Demonbreun, Michelle Ramadan, Thomas Jensen, Allan Ndovu, Shannon Aubert, everybody in this video, and this one, Joey Valery, Chris Barry, Conner Smith, and the rest of my entire freaking dorm.
To my mom and dad, for funding the premium wordpress account that allows for such a sexy interface.
To all those who helped me get back up when some sour, unconstructive feedback knocked me down: Allan Ndovu and Shannon Aubert for scheming up plans to roast the haters, and my mom and dad for suggesting some more productive recuperation methods.
To every single last person who has ever complimented the blog and/or given constructive feedback. These readers have taken the time out to share their thoughts with me in person, in passing, through text, on Facebook messenger, over the phone, and in the comments. For this, I could never thank them enough!
And lastly, but certainly not least, I’d like to thank YOU, Dear Reader. Every time you visit CiC, the numbers go up and my heart smiles 🙂 . Your involvement sincerely brightens my every day. Thank you.
OK WAITWAITWAIT ALso while we’re at it, I’d like to give a shout out to my international readers!! I see you all over the world, chillin’ up in Spain, France, England, South Africa, Chile, Argentina, Brazil, and Australia. Thanks for reading!
Okay I think that’s enough for now. I don’t wanna get all emotional before brunch…
Have a great Saturday, DR, and don’t forget to spread the CiC love!!
