Modish is 4 years old!

4 years ago, on April, 4th I started writing this little blog from my cubicle desk job between phone calls. 4 years later, I'm still writing it, only now from a comfy vintage chair at home, surrounded by kitties and cuddled up in pjs. It's been 4 years! Can you believe it? I can't! This is officially the longest standing "job" I've ever had. 3 years is usually my max limit before I must quit or die of boredom. But I woke up today just as excited to work as the day I first started it, and that's something I never imagined would happen.

I really want to say thank you dear readers and thank you to all my incredible sponsors over the years. Whether you've been reading since day one or just found Modish yesterday, you are the reason I've been able to keep it going for so long. You're the reason I've been able to create a career I actually enjoy. I'm still not sure where it will all lead, but I'm taking one day at a time. And have been for the last, let's see… 1460 days!

As a little thank you to you all, and in celebration of the 40th anniversary of Earth Day, I'll be hosting a major giveaway here next week put on by my wonderful eco-friendly guest writer Liz! She rounded up loads of Cosa Verde participants and we'll be giving away 4 boxes full of eco-friendly goodies worth $400 each! That starts next Monday- stay tuned!

    Funnily enough, we have the exact same blog anniversary (4yrs on 4/4)! Although, I’ve opted to use the auspicious date to head in a different and new direction.
    Keep on keepin’ on, my dear, 40 more years of Modish sounds excellent to me!
    big love,
