A few weeks ago, we went to the Racked NY offices to photograph the team to show you The Many Bags of Racked. The team at Racked approached me afterward to include me in their Ladies Who Launch series, which features women and the businesses they start.

I was honored to be included and chatted with writer Adele Chapin about how we started PurseBlog, some of the biggest hurdles I’ve faced and what’s next. Plus, I let you in on the secret to buying a Birkin, which you might already know from reading PurseBlog! I’d like to thank Racked for including me in the series; make sure to check it out, and if you have any additional questions, you can ask me here!

Check out PurseBlog feature on Racked!

    Great article! It is so clear that you love what you do and still find the whole handbag thing exciting (me too!). I found the PurseBlog in 2006 and felt “these are MY people!” Still one of the first sites I visit each morning–Thank you for being here.

    • You’re a longtimer!!!! So glad to have you visit each morning and have you as “our people”!!!!

    Have you thought about starting a PB wiki? I would love to see a centralized style guide that we could add pics and info to, it would make authentication a lot easier!

    • Great idea!!! We have versions of this on the forum, but it would be cool to have one place to house it all. I will see what we can do!

      • Stina Sias

        I would use it a lot! I rely on the forums frequently for authentication, but with so many bags there are small deviations from season to season i.e. Serial numbers, hardware, dust bags, etc. It would be really useful to have a more centralized catalogue to find what you’re looking for :)

    Congratulations Meg’s and the team! You guys have created history. Love the passion and energy that you put into your work everyday. I have been a member for 4 years and visit your site daily. I also love your reviews of bags and find them genuine. All the best for ten more years to come.
    I read that negative comments do get to you but I think they also lead to your growth-everyone who has bothered to put comments have remained loyal to your site. We take our bags very seriously;)

    • So happy to have you as part of the journey!! I am so passionate about our readers as is the team, so I’m glad you feel that sense of community here that we have tried to create!

    Hi Megs, Congratulations on getting some very good publicity. I’m a newcomer, 2 years, and I love Purseblog so much. Other than the articles, the other best aspects are Vlad’s photos and the members comments. Keep up the great work, I love coming here for a break during my busy work day.

    Congrats Megs! To tell you the truth, I already think you have all the publicity and impact on the handbag world. I don’t know if I’m wrong, but in 2007, when I found this blog, I don’t remember there was anything else even similar to it online, so you guys are pioneers in a full sense of the world. Hope you guys have even more and more success <3 <3 <3. Sometimes, when I go to boutiques, the SA don't even know some of the bag names or their history, and I would be like this is called X, and this designer created it in "Y", and the SA's would be like "How do you know all this?" . Honestly, I didn't use to say "Purseblog" because I'm such a selfish person and I liked to keep you guys for myself around here. But I've recently started to out you guys :)
