Three years! Wow. It’s hard to believe it’s been so long since I first started this blog. Writability’s had some pretty awesome milestones along the way and I’ve had so much fun running this blog. And will continue to do so. :)

In honor of Writability’s third birthday, there are going to be some fun things this week! Happy fun things. And I can’t wait to share them with you guys, and that’s all I’m going to say about that.

Well, maybe one more hint: tomorrow is Writability’s actual birthday. I don’t usually post on Tuesdays but you maaaaayyy want to stop by. Just saying.
