Two years ago today, this blog was born.
I cannot believe I’ve been writing here five days a week for two years. This is my 512th post. What??? It’s hard to wrap my head around.
The most important thing for me to say on my second birthday is this: Thank you. I don’t think I say it enough. That you all come back day after day, reading, commenting, and sharing this blog with your own BFFs means so much to me.
That you’ve spent your hard-earned money on MWF Seeking BFF, launching the book to national bestsellerdom… you actually made my dreams come true. It’s not every day I get to say that, but I mean it here.
To recap the life of this blog, I thought I woud highlight some of the biggest posts of the past two years.
Most Controversial: The Wedding Gift Question
Most Commented: Is There an Anti-Mom Sentiment When It Comes to Friendship?
Most Page Views: On Women Who Won’t Be Friends With Women. “Too Much Drama.” (Big thanks to The Happiness Project’s Gretchen Rubin for linking back to MWF on the day of this post!)
Biggest Geek Out Moment: Ann M. Martin’s Infinite Wisdom
Favorite Guest Post: The Male Perspective (courtesy of husband Matt!)
I could go on, but for now let me just say that you all are the best. Thank you.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Two years ago, MWF Seeking BFF, the book, was just a dream. Now it’s a reality. To see what these two years have brought:

Happy birthday, blog! I didn’t realize you were so “young” when we first met.
I finished MWF Seeking BFF last night at long last! Love it and so happy that you’re enjoying such success.
Thanks for sharing with us every morning!
Congrats, Rachel! I can’t believe it’s been two years. I don’t know how you do it!!
Happy blog birthday! So cool that you get to celebrate. 🙂
Happy birthday! I have loved reading your blog. While I don’t comment regularly, I do read every post and find something in each one to take away. Here’s to many more birthdays!
Yay! Happy Blog Birthday Rachel! Thank you for your courage, your efforts and your funny, life-changing book. There will be spores of fresh BFF friendships all over the world EVERYDAY because of YOUR book, and your determination to be bold and to brave not so great ‘girl dates’ to get what we all need. I hope you are having a party with your new BFF’s to celebrate. It’s nice to know that people’s dreams come true. x
Happy blog birthday! I just finished your book last night, and it has totally inspired me. I’ve been feeling in such a friend rut lately, but had no idea how to change things up. Thanks to you, I have a plan – and some courage!
ps. As a writer myself, I know how hard it can be to follow this path. Many congrats on your success!!
2 years! That’s amazing and hard to believe. Your dedication is so admirable!!!
Happy Anniversary, Rachel 🙂
Just think, because of you, a girl in South Africa is now blogging regularly on a Friday on the subject of friendship. I love it!
Happy Blog Birthday! It’s awesome following the success of your book after reading it the first week it was on the shelf to Bestsellerdom! (good word, btw).
Yay! All great work. I think in some way your book changed my life.
Wow. Thank you so much for saying that Emily.
Happy, Happy Blog Birthday, Rachel! The book is absolutely awesome and when I finished it I wanted so much to keep reading. Thank goodness for the blog! You’ve been quite the inspiration to me. Thank you so much!
