Happy Anniversary I am the F-Bomb!
Here's to four years of space and support for women writers.
When I came to you, I was new to the publishing world. Sure, I'd been blogging for myself of a while, sharing it with friends and family but with no target audience. For my 28th birthday I set myself a goal -be published and get paid for it by birthday 29th. Work was finally slowing down after a brutal two years, and I was completing my Masters in the summer. I'd have plenty of time to devote to my love, the written word.
You were the first to accept me when I started shopping around my first article. I had been following you for a while after having heard of you from Birmingham friends. I liked the unapologetic style of the articles and the simple premise of the site. I tried to publish a few places with no success, Then I sent you "How to Be a Heartbreaker" and got an enthusiastic response. That was it! I'd be published. Thought Catalog decided they would publish it too, but your acceptance meant so much more. As I move and expand, you'll always have a special place in my heart.
May we have many more years together to come!
