Purse Forum Members

I have to tell you, this is a feat that I don’t think I EVER imagined would happen. Back in 2005 Vlad and I started Purse Blog as a fun side project after my career ending sports injury and attempt to find something ‘new’ to do. Both Vlad and I wanted something to work on together and that ended up being Purse Blog. We never imagined our site would grow to be what it is today, reaching over 20,000 visitors everyday. After we started the blog Vlad introduced me to the idea of a forum. I had never been on an online discussion board but I thought it would be great idea to have a place for other handbag lovers to convene. A month after we started the Purse Forum we had 200 members.

Now, less than four years after we started the Purse Forum, which has become known as tPF, we are nearing our 200,000th member. This number is beyond staggering, beyond amazing, and we are so thrilled to be part of such an amazing forum. While hugely vast in size, there is still a close knit community which has become one of the most active forums on the web. The importance of tPF in the handbag and fashion community continues to come to life every day, with more designers and companies realizing the impact of the forum. For us, the entire journey is something we have loved every minute of, no matter how many Nike Shoe spammers hit our forum at the wee hours of the morning (really, what is up with them?!).

Thank you to every single one of you who visits our blog, visits our forum, and helps us continue to grow to be the leading source in handbags and fashion. Who knows how quickly the 200,000th member will come now, I am thinking to pull an all-nighter with a bag of popcorn and celebrate this monumental moment!

Again, thank you to every one of you who make this blog and forum what it is!
