700 Posts and 6 Years Later: It’s My Blogversary!

I’m a TERRIBLE house blog mother because yesterday was an important anniversary and I forgot it. But now I am here and I must pay amish… to MYSELF. I’m a Capricorn and my blog is a Leo.

I’ve been blogging for 9 years, but six years ago on August 8, 2006, I put up my first post on a blog that was supposed to be about my grown up life and other random rants I might have. I was a new college graduate and I felt like I had outgrown my Xanga blog so I hopped to Blogspot and created a new site. I called it “Luvvie’s Queendom” (soooo wack) and my first post was so lame! I mean, yeah I’m still lame now but I wear better shoes so sharrap. (-__-)

Anywho, 6 years and 700 posts later, that original wackness has evolved into the ratchet space known as Awesomely Luvvie today, and *Coming to America voice* I AM HAPPY TO BE HERE! In fact, this is my 700th post. And I’m also happy to say I’ve become a wayyy better writer over the years. Reading some of m old posts makes me give myself the side-eye.

In honor of this 6th anniversary and blog birthday of mine, here are 6 things I want my readers to know:

1. Although I might not reply, I read each and EVERY comment you leave me. And I get a huge kick out of it.

II. I’m afraid that one day, y’all gon stop giving a damb about what I write and leave me in the Land of Abandoned Blogs

c. Every time you share or RT my blog or email it to someone, an angel gets to take a sip of Moscato. True story. Look it up on Wikipedia.

4d. The fact that you read this blog means you’re awesome. This is a fact that can’t be debated.

V. I’m actually not tall at all. I just talk big shit.

6. I’ll never stop being thankful for this eSpace that has grown beyond my wildest expectations.


With that being said, let’s drink and be merry. I brought Bailey’s Irish Cream and red velvet cupcakes for everyone. I’ll be the one in the corner dancing like this in celebration:

    Congrats Luvvie! I find this story about the beginnings of your blog quite inspiring as a new blogger! You remind me that success in blogging takes time! So thanks for sharing! Keep writing, shading, goofing, and certainly walk sliding! You being you makes us laugh and makes the world better. Be blessed!

    I hardly comment, but I read your blogs a lot. Please keep it up. You are the insanity I need after a sane day! Maybe that’s the other way around.

    Anywho, I sent someone your way concerning a website. Cheers to many more years of Luvvie!

    I hate your numbering system. I hate the way you make me cackle all the time for no reason. I hate the way you make me cry real water tears. I hate the way you always know what Im thinking then tell me to Sharrap. YOU DONT KNOW ME. What I really mean is I love your retarded butt Luvvie.

    I missed your anniversary. Had I know I would have asked my Mom to make you one of her famous homemade cakes. She does a mean Red Velvet for her church members for only $25.
