Happy 10th Anniversary, Fug Nation


Greetings, dear Fug Nation!

Today is a milestone: today, we are 10 years old. Last year around this time, Heather and I had a long conversation about how we were going to mark this momentous occasion with something big. But the first draft of The Royal We was due to our editor today and instead I guess we ended up celebrating by making our deadline.  Which is big. We’d never have gotten to write this, or any of our books, were it not for Go Fug Yourself and — far, far more importantly — were it not for you, our readers. Over half a million comments later, over fifteen thousand posts written, we are so grateful that you are still hanging out with us here every day. There is no better community of readers than Fug Nation. To quote the greatest love story of our time: thank you for being a friend.

Because I am somewhat out of words today, I have chosen to express to you all the feels I feel about our 10th birthday via the artful gif:

George is right. Time to get back to work. See you in the comments.

    Congratulations! I love you guys! And that Brandon Walsh gif made me spit out my coffee!

      That was me for the giddy Kate Middleton (when that was her name) GIF!

    • Liane

      My computer is sloooooow. So when I got there it was frozen mid-GIF & I thought it was just a still of Dylan staring moodily into the distance. Which was fine, but not nearly as funny.

        Congratulations you two! I’ve been reading GFY daily for about 3 years, but did at one point read back through your ENTIRE ARCHIVES, so… Anyway, I’m so impressed by how beautifully this site has evolved, and what a thoughtful, brilliant, hilarious place it is. As my friend Michelle would say, Smart Girl Slumberparty!!! Xoxo

      SAME! I CRACKED UP.

      Heather & Jessica, it’s no secret that I love you ladies. I’ve been here almost the full 10 years and this is the ONLY site I still visit regularly. You two are the best and im so happy for you.

  11. Elise

    I first discovered GFY in middle school. Now I’m about to graduate from college and I still read it every day. Thank you for literally half a lifetime of entertainment!

  12. Jenny Smith

    You ladies are the best. GFY is always a mood lifter and I love how you have evolved over time to become a place where we can say “you are a gorgeous person and you are better than those shoes!”

    Congratulations!

    And thank you! Thank you for bringing laughter and a bit of silliness to my day. Thank you for fostering a community full of intelligent, witty people that aren’t afraid to admit they appreciate the lighter side of life.

    And thank you for Olympic Abs.

      Me too. Whenever I feel like I’m about to burst from the stress, I go to this site. Hands down the nicest moderators and commenters in the internet. I have given up on a lot of sites not because of the content but because of the rude comments. This site is like my online happy place. Congrats you guys!

        Yes! Best commenters around. Thank you Heather & Jessica for years of laughs, and many many great reads discovered in Fugs & Pieces. You are the best of the interwebz every day!

    That is incredible. I have read GFY for a long time – not quite 10 years, but close – and I truly thank you for the countless times you two (and Fug Nation) have made me laugh when I was feeling a little crotchety. You guys have built something special here and I love it!

  18. Gypsy Danger
    +14

    Big congrats! I don’t remember how, but I stumbled onto this site a few years ago and after spending a short amount of time here, it became a daily destination.

    Thanks for consistently bringing humor into my day, along with well written commentary on issues outside of fashion and entertainment.

    I’ve been a part of Fug Nation for nearly 10 years – where does the time go?

    Thank you Heather & Jessica for all that you do – you truly are the wind beneath our collective wings.

    We really need to organize FugCon in honor of your 10th Anniversary. Who wants to be on the planning committee?

  22. LIsa
    +20

    Thank you Heather and Jessica for ten years of dedication; what you do for Fug Nation is invaluable, from finding pictures of Intern George and Pacey looking hot, to having to sift through who knows how much fugly, all in the interests of Fug Madness, to covering the Oscars and all other major dressing up events, with enthusiasm and gusto! Here’s to ten more years (and many many more) of Fug Nation.

    I hope Intern George drops around later with cake and diet coke so you guys get to celebrate, even just a little bit.

    Congratulations! And thank you so much for the finest possible entertainment and the best writing on the web! You guys are peerless and this is the most fun ever! I love having this secret getaway from life/work/stuff!

    We should have sent you gifts, but these gifs are all my favorite things — how did you know?

    And how do you do it? What time turning powers enable you to write and read all this stuff, do all your research — and watch so much TV??? it is magical.

    Ten more years! Please!

    Comgratulations and Happy Anniversary! Let’s see… an appropriate tenth-anniversary gift would be wine cardigans with plenty of wine, yes? Or matching caftans and a lanai to go with? So many options, really. Thank you for fostering a community of wit, intelligence, respect, and good grammar!

    Happy Birthday GFY!! I started reading about 5 years ago, so while I was not around for the beginnings, I am certainly glad to be here now. Y’all do such great work. Congratulations on 10 Fabulous and Fugly years!

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY GFY!!!!!!

    Thank you for the laughs, introspective thoughts, and poignant posts over the past however many years I’ve been following this site. It’s been awesome. I also think that a site’s community reflects the creators so…yeah.

    Also, happy Canada Day. ^_^

  31. Katy B

    I don’t think I would have survived grad school and my 9-5 these past few years without you. Thank you both for all the laughs!

    Oh ladies, this site makes my day on a regular basis. You work very hard to bring the fug, the snark, and the lulz, and I am extremely grateful for it. Happy anniversary and here’s to many, many more!

  33. Jess
    +11

    I started a graduate program in the fall of 2003, and rapidly found myself in need of Amusing Things to Read on the Internet. I’ve read every single post on this site (!), and the humor and intelligence and wit of you two wonderful people (and this great community) helped propel me through the slog of my dissertation. I couldn’t have done it without you! Thanks a bunch.

  34. Henrietta

    Congrats, Heather and Jessica, and thanks for all the fish, er, for all the hours of fun, history and trivia lessons, and for being my haven when I’m grumpy. You are awesome!

    Happy Anniversary! I can’t even remember when I started reading GFY, it wasn’t 10 years ago, but maybe 8 or 9? It has been a daily stop for me ever since. You all are smart, sassy, witty, and wonderful.

  36. Teri Rutledge
    +1

    You two are the best! Congratulations on 10 years!

    That collection of gifs is epic, magical. Obviously I need to download a bunch of old 90210 episodes because for the life of me, I don’t remember what episode that is from and it is hilarious!

  37. helmore
    +6

    Congratulations! You ladies are the best. GFY has been part of my life since my first job in 2006, when you provided much-needed relief from a terrible boss and ridiculous hours, through grad school, and as I’ve come to own my own business. I appreciate your wit and intelligence, and am constantly inspired in my own endeavors by the way you’ve made a living doing what you love.

    Thanks for the laughs, the inspiration, and the community you’ve built!

  38. The Reset

    This is genuinely my favorite website ever. Happy tenth, Heather and Jessica! Here’s to ten more years of fug fashion, diet cokes, and snarky wonderfulness. Let us know when the Fug Nation compound/ retreat is ready.

    Congrats, Jessica and Heather! I can’t believe I started reading you all 10 years ago (yikes! we’re old!). :) Thanks for the laughs, and for being the sweetest fashion-disaster analysts on the internets.

  40. Narshkite
    +8

    Congratulations. Thanks for giving us this community of smart, discerning, witty, supportive people (we are, after all, created in the Fug Grils’ image.) I look forward to dropping in most every day to bond over many things, bad fashion among those things, but often not at the top of the list.

    Woot! Can I interest you (although perhaps others have already alerted you) in some SWINTON and Bowie to celebrate? http://www.vanityfair.com/vf-hollywood/five-bizarre-answers-tilda-swinton-ama?mbid=social_tumblr#/slide/2

Now if only they wouldn’t block it at work (“your network administrator has blocked this site because *lingerie;bikini*”). Oh my; how am I supposed to get through a day of work without seeing what Kate would do or what everyone else is wearing? Anyway, thanks for everything you do; I catch up at home after work!

    Thank you and congratulations!! This website is always my most frequently visited, and has been for years. It didn’t slowly become a cesspool of yuck, like so many sites that seem promising but eventually give in to the internet’s love of sleaze. (In fact, for Lent, I gave up internet reading, but I allowed myself to keep GFY, because how can adoring Kate Middleton really be bad for anyone?)

    I love you guys. You make me smile every day!

    Congratulations! Thank you for years of distractions and entertainments. Whenever my husband hears me laughing from rooms (sometimes floors) away, he always knows I’m on your site. Over the years you have entertained us, laughed with us, rolled your eyes with us, and lifted our spirits when we were down, and I thank you both.

    Huge congratulations! 10 years?!?!?! I found your site through a friend in college, probably around when you started 10 years ago. I have a lot of feelings about the fact that my sophomore year of college was 10 years ago, but mostly, I’m just thankful for your amazing posts! They make me giggle regularly, and have been a daily source of laughs throughout college, and they got me through grad school. Congrats again, and may Cressy’s scrunchie never cease to exist! Fug forever!

    I’ve been here for 7 of those 10 years and like many, many others I’d just like to say thanks for all the laughs! And congratulations on meeting that deadline. You guys must be so tired but happy right now!

    Congratulations Heather and Jessica!

    I am a long time reader but just a recent poster. You guys deserve every accolade and it has been such a joy to see you both turn into consummate writers. You are funny in every single post, every single day. Your warmth and wit shine through everything you do and you are truly hilarious in such a natural and effortless way.

    Well done!!

    (You also inspire me personally as a young woman and busy mother, to work really hard towards my goals and to never wear nude pumps and always wear a bracelet.)

    Sorry am usually much more British and reserved but if I can’t tell you how great you are today, on your tenth anniversary, then when can I?!

    Looking forward to seeing what the future holds for you both :)

    I’ve been reading GFY since 2005 — it’s been a daily part of my life ever since and has made me a better dresser and a more proud viewer of CW shows.

  81.  Steph
    +14

    Congrats Heather and Jessica!

    This site is a daily ritual (at least twice a day), and I think I’m better for it. :) Your posts only get more witty and hysterical with each passing year, and the fine Fug Nationals who comment here are a great bunch of people. Despite the fact this site was created to snark (ever so politely) on clothing, it’s a positive and intelligent breath of fresh air in the midst of many other celeb-related websites.

    I have my wine cardigan, bracelets and blue blazer packed… when do we leave for the Inaugural Fug Nation Wine and Fashion Retreat?

    PS: Thank you for George. The baby AND the intern.

    Even when I’m only lurking and not commenting, this is a site that I’m compelled to read and laugh along with nearly every day. I love this place. You guys do such a great job fostering a sense of community, and you never discourage disagreement, but when it gets a little contentious, you ably steer it back into more amusing territory. It’s good. It’s really, really good. Congrats on the 10 Fugging Years!

    Happy Anniversary, GFY!! Thank you, Heather and Jessica, for all this AMAZBALLS content you both produce! I’ve been avoiding work/rewarding work effort with GFY for 9 years, and “Spoiled” and “Messy” were my favorite summer reads. The growth of GFY has been truly wonderful (Fug Madness! Recaps galore! Live blogging events! Royals! Weekend WTFs!). Thanks for working so hard (and having so much fun at it). Very excited for the new book and looking forward to many more entertaining years with GFY!

    I can tell you the precise intersection in South Philly I pulled up to while listening to your interview on Here and Now. Robin Young was coyly explaining why she couldn’t spell out the precise URL because theirs was a family show. Not quite ten years ago, but a long, long time. I’m still a fan! Happy 10th, Heather and Jessica!

Many thanks for the laughs and the smarts. I’ve been impressed with the growth of the blog over the years; the writing and focus get tighter and better all the time, which is how it should be.

    Happy Anniversary!!!!! I started reading in very early 2006, right after I discovered the blogiverse. This has been one of my absolute favourites ever since. You have cheered me up on some tough days. You’ve got everything – clothes! parties! rock stars! celebrities behaving badly! celebrities being good people! royalty! goats! cultural references! imaginary worlds that are more fun than the real one! recaps for shows I’ll never watch and now never need to!!! – and you’re damn fine writers on top of that. I can’t imagine how much work you’ve put into this. (Especially since that handsome intern just isn’t very effective at his job.) I remember way back when the comments were off until everybody could behave themselves!

    Well, I’m going to get ready for our 23rd wedding anniversary dinner, watch the Canada Day fireworks, and finish reading Go Fug Yourself! Not necessarily in that order. Have a fantastic day, Fug Girls!!!! If you keep this up for another ten years, I’ll keep reading!

    YAY FUG GIRLS! YAY FUG NATION! HAPPY 10TH!

    Congratulations on 10 great years! I was a fairly regular reader until you permanently hooked me with Fug the Fromage:The Client List. A masterpiece, if you ask me!

    Wow! 10 years later and you are still my #1 destination each morning at work (and, I must admit, each afternoon and sometimes at night). Your writing and humor is spot on. You are also the only reason I know about such things as Peldons and Phoebe Price, and while I’m not sure I’m exactly better off for that knowledge, at least it has been fun filling my brain with the names of those who professionally (dis)grace the red carpet.

    Hats off to you and enjoy many many Diet Cokes in celebration of your milestone!

    Congratulations! I’ve been reading GFY for nine years (and read your amazing TWoP recaps before that) and it remains one of my favorite places on the Internet. You two are incredibly talented writers and it is such a pleasure reading your work, whether it’s here, on NYMag, or in your books.

    Cannot WAIT for the Royal We. As someone who studied in England and landed a British boyfriend, the plot holds a special place in my heart :)

    • Jessica

      Becca… did we mention that our heroine is named Rebecca? (Though of course you may be a “Becca,” and she goes by Bex.) ARE YOU FROM THE FICTIONAL REALM?!

      • Becca
        +9

        You did not mention that!! I go by a combination of Rebecca and Becca (depends on whether I’m at work, basically). HOWEVER. My mom and one of my best friends, whom I met at Cambridge, call me “Becks.” Are we having a Stranger Than Fiction moment?

        This just absolutely made my week, you guys.

  106. Brittany

    Thank you for being the best! There are few websites I check as gleefully and regularly as GFY. Y’all are the best–here’s to 10 more years (and many, many more)!!

    I cannot believe it’s already been 10 years. Thank you, ladies, for a fun and smart website. It’s always interesting, and you’ve managed to attract a great community of commenters. You also always keep me supplied with great links on Fridays with Fugs and Pieces. Congratulations!

    Happy Birthday, Fug Girls!

    Like all of us, I come here not only for the clothes pics (we could look at them on other sites, I guess), but for your hilarious and smart observations about clothes and … everything, really. Without you, I’d never have learned about cultural highlights like I Wanna Marry Harry :D And everytime I think what it would be like to win an Oscar (IT MIGHT TOTALLY HAPPEN, YOU KNOW), one of my first thought is: “I wonder what the Fug Girls would say about my outfit”. I would wear bracelets, that’s for damn sure.

    In the last few years I’ve pretty much stopped reading gossip/celebrity sites, but I will never give up GFY, because there’s never, NEVER any body snark or body shaming. Not only from you two, but also from us, from Fug Nation, which is the community you created. We are a great community. I am so proud of everybody here, I am actually tearing up a bit right now.

    So, thank you, Fug Girls, and thank you, Fug Nation.

  113. Grace
    +1

    It is my favorite part of the day most days to go onto GFY and reading your live blog of the red carpet is half of the reason I love awards shows! You guys are the sharpest, most clever writers around. Plus, I deeply appreciate the rage you share with me over nude shoes!!! Congrats on 10 years and here’s to many more!!

  114. Loren

    I have been loving you Fug Girls since the beginning, when I was still at college and probably should have looked into pants more…. and now here I am a married mother of a toddler trying to come up with an excuse for why i’m snorting with laughter without having to explain the term ‘vagina sling’ :)
    You have given so many people so much happiness, and abs. And for that we thank you and look forward to the next 10 years!
    And seriously, a Fug Nation Retreat MUST happen. Compulsory caftans, bracelets, and mai tais for all!

  116. Andi

    Congratulations. And thanks for making me spit my coffee out at my computer screen at least 3 times a week. (Can you say “Hola, lovers!”, boys and girls?) I wish, wish, wish you lived next door. Or down the street. Or even on the same coast. You two are the best. Hope you continue to snark and snipe for at least another 10 years.

    Happy Anniversary! I have been with you since the beginning and you never fail brighten my day with your observations. Things that hooked me were Courtney and Brown Peldon. I miss them everyday…but there are so many fuggily dressed people that you have caused me to fall in love with. NEVER EVER STOP BEING FABULOUS AND AMAZING AND FIERCE AND SMIZING! (sorry, I’m yelling with so much emotion) Love you guys forever and ever. Swellcatt (Catherine)

    Congratulations, and thank you ever so much for the continued brightening of my day!

    I remember long ago, hearing (not seeing, because I was putting on makeup in the bathroom and listening to the bedroom television) Matt Lauer talking to one of you (Jessica, maybe?) about your website and how you named it before you thought about your mother seeing it…and thought that I would definitely have to check it out. I’m so glad I did – you have been a daily fix since then. I love y’all!!!

    • Jessica
      +7

      Aw, thank you!! We DEFINITELY have never gotten to be on the Today Show, though, so it wasn’t Matt Lauer. I wonder who it was! We certainly have said that many a time. (Maybe you are PSYCHIC and Matt Lauer will soon come to pass! That would be exciting.)

      Also: Thank you everyone, so so so much. Heather and I feel very, VERY very lucky to have you all in our lives.

      •  Amy
        +2

        Well, darn! Matt SHOULD have had you on…. I’m at a loss now. If I was putting on makeup, it would have HAD to be a workday/weekday morning. My hand doesn’t take the shape required to hold mascara on the weekends!
        Whoever it was, bless them for bringing GFY into my life!!!

    Mwah!!! Big hugs and kisses to the Fug Girls (I still can’t decide which one of you is funnier/l like better…….so I love you both the same). You don’t know how many times you saved my day and made me smile/laugh/snort. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Hope we have many, many more years ahead.

  126. Kris
    +2

    Ditto on what everyone else said. GFY has been a daily dose of fun for me ever since the Peldon era. Making thousands of people smile on a daily basis for a decade adds up to doing a lot of good overall; y’all should be proud of yourselves.

    What is the source of the second one – Emma Stone I think?

  140.  Becky
    +22

    I’ve been following you faithfully from the very beginning because the content is just really entertaining. You have managed to create a witty, intelligent, and very relevant site about something which, at its core, may be frivolous (fashion – often bad fashion) – but your end product is smart and often thought-provoking (see: lengthy discussion prompted by your post on Diane Krueger about Little Women and Grease).

    What also draws me to your site is the fact that in this age of anonymous vitriol, poor grammar, and bashing of others, you have maintained a sense of decorum, charm, and good nature – and your readers do the same. That is huge! I mean, snark is important and should be applied when needed, but you always keep it above the belt.

    Brava!! Here’s to another 10 –

  141. Kristan
    +2

    Many many congratulations!!! Happy anniversary! Proud to say I’ve been on the other side the screen for these past 10 years as well. Here’s to many more years of jumpsuits, sheer skirts, cracktabulous hats, polterwang, beige heels, pantalunacy, Fug Madness and Fromages, side & under boob, and your next intern (I vote for Jon Hamm or Colin Firth).

  142.  Aspasia

    You have been a part of my work day for so many years now (not quite ten but close) and I THINK YOU ROCK! Thank you for making me laugh and for teaching me some differences between fashion foolery and mind blowing looks. Leggings are not pants and never will be.

    without you guys, I would know next to nothing about ice dancing, and that would be a shame.

    without you, I would also have not known how to enact the Britney Rule in my own life, and that would also be a shame.

    Congratulations!! I have wasted many an hour enjoying your site – and actually now follow Hart of Dixie and Nashville solely through your Fug the Shows. I especially love those occasions when I see a crazy outfit somewhere else then rush to the site, and not only have you posted on it, but you’ve picked up exactly what I was thinking about it – like it’s dialogue with a silent partner!! Keep up the sassiness.

    Yay! Happy 10th birthday!

    I just want to say that you ladies haven given me hours of fashion, laughter, anger (why is EVERYTHING sheer?!?!?!), and everything in between. You also have given me one of my favorite ways to respond to something so utterly ridiculous that it renders you practically speechless: WORDS. In fact, I was helping a friend with their resume and I wanted him to put more info so I wrote in the place – “WORDS” and it made me smile. :)

  159.  Cecilia

    Many congratulations on your new book and your continued success! You each deserve a Starter Cartier, AT THE VERY LEAST.

    I discovered you all via The Cut and I was so mad that it took me like a year to figure out you had your own site. I haven’t been here all 10 but I know it’s at least 8? And I remember when you opened the comments and that has made it even more fun. I feel like Fug Nation really is a unique and special group of people, and you two make me grin (and laugh, and snarf my coffee, and weep for humanity) every single day. There have to be days you just don’t feel on, you’re writing chapters of books and must be exhausted, and yet you pull it out of yourselves – just for us. THANK YOU! Love you! xoxo

    I started reading this site fairly close to the beginning I think (2004 or 2005, can’t remember) and as much as I loved it in the beginning, I think it has only gotten better over time. I don’t know how you come up with as much funny stuff as you do every single day, but I’m so thankful that you do. GFY is the BEST blog ever and Fug Nation is truly the best community on the web. Congratulations on 10 years and best wishes for many, many more!!!

Thank you, Heather and Jessica, for creating such an amazing site and community. This is my favourite corner of the internet and it’s all about what you girls have fostered here. I hope you will be kicking back and celebrating tonight – two amazing milestones in one day!! Happy anniversary and Happy manuscript day!

    Happy Anniversary, Jessica and Heather! There is a saying, “Do what you love, you will be better at it.” It is crystal clear that you both love what you do! It was one year ago today that I found you all. My oldest child left to start his life and I was a sobbing wreck and you all made me laugh thru the tears. I will never forget that. And then you kept me occupied until I could calm down over the next few days and come ’round to finally (kind of) dry my eyes. Thank you for all your hard work, dedication, extraordinary writing and very clever wit. And many more, Ladies!!! Taunya :D

    Happy Anniversary and congratulations, you guys!! I have laughed (and grieved poor fashion choices) with you since stumbling across your blog when it was about a year old, on its anniversary, I do believe. I’ve followed you through getting married and having a kid and getting cancer and living through it–and I swear if there wasn’t patient-access wi-fi so I could follow Fug Madness that year, it would have done me in. (Some indignities are simply too much to bear, and I suspect that would have been one of them.) But no. You were there. So I straightened my caftan, added ice to my drink, and soldiered on with withering scorn for all pantsless transgressors everywhere. Thank you for all those years, The Fug Awards, and two great novels. Can’t wait for the third.

    Thank YOU for being a friend. I’ve been reading since almost the very beginning and you keep me coming back every day. I found you guys via TWoP and you are my favourite! I’ve read your books and can’t wait for the next one. Cheers to both you smart, funny women!

    Happy Fuggin’ Birthday!!!!

    When I was introduced to y’all it was back in the day, when you ladies were QUITE a bit meaner. The college friend who first led me here was kind of an Edgy Mean Girl and I remember thinking that GFY was a bit more her humor than mine. Now I know you are two of the funniest, most nuanced, intelligent, and eminently readable (and hardworking!) blog voices on the whole of the internet. I couldn’t live without your TV fugcaps and my boyfriend also thinks you two are absolutely hilarious and incisive. Here’s to the next Fug-cade!

    Congratulations from a long-time lurker. GFY is my guilty pleasure. It gratifies my love of fashion and passion for wit and brilliant writing. May you continue to fug for many years.

    P.S. As your .gif clearly proves, Hermione should have married Harry.

    My sister got me started on gfy and it’s one of the best gifts she’s ever given me. Thanks for getting me through some tough times with your hilarious writing, and for inspiring me through your continued humanity and wit. To many more awesome years!

    Thank you both for giving me ten years of great reading. I know all of us in Fug Nation have gone through some stuff in the past ten years (wow) and having Go Fug Yourself has been a day brightener. Please keep writing.

    Happy Anniversary! I am a faithful reader who doesn’t comment (I don’t consider myself qualified; I don’t wear heels, let alone an entry-level Cartier) but I enjoy reading the comments as much as the posts. I work at a newspaper, and the trolls get me down. I love having this troll-free site to check after work. Congratulations on a decade of fab!

    Congrats, you two! I’ve loved this site since I first found it—no idea when that was, but you still had the old blogspot address. Raising a glass even as I laugh at autocorrect’s attempt to change “bloodspot” to “bloodsport”—hey, whatever it takes.

    happy anniversary! I started reading you almost from the first, I think, although I’ve only just started commenting after all these years. Because we’ve hit that level in our relationship where now I just let it all hang out, right there in front of you. The romance may be gone, but the solid, enduring fug underneath remains. Many more decades to come! Slainte!

    Happy 10th! I’ve been a reader since your TwOP recapper days and love your site. I still laugh over the JLo/Hola Lovers, “Love, BRITNEY!” Fug Letters, and a particularly impassioned plea to Jonah Hill that if you see those shoes one more time “they’re going in the fire.” Love you ladies.

    Ladies, I have been following your amazing work since TWoP days, and still regret not being able to meet you at your ‘Summer of Debauchery’ (I don’t think that was the actual name, but you will know what I mean) meet up many years ago. Very hearty congratulations on your achievement! Thank you so much for brightening many days for me with your excellent content.

    Chiming in to add to the chorus of praise — I can’t tell you how much I appreciate the wit, intelligence, humor, and thoughtfulness of the commentary on this site. So often (take, as but one example, the porntastic Glee GQ cover), your thoughts perfectly reflect my own. I was trying to recall how long I’ve been reading this site, so I decided to look at some early 2004 posts to see if I could find ones I remember. I’m thrilled and immensely proud to report that, thanks to The Bow, I can say with certainty that I’ve been a Fug National since the beginning! :) Many thanks and congratulations!

    Many thanks and congratulations!

    I have been reading for pretty much the whole ten years (the site, I’ve been able to read for quite a bit longer than that), and I love the community you created. I actually sent my very first, and possible only, fan email to you, and you responded (which I did NOT expect) with a very friendly email, and won my heart completely. To many more years!

    Congrats on 10 years! I’ll never forget finding this site in late 2005 (I think because the WSJ covered you guys and reading the article intrigued me), and how it became such an endless source of shrieking laughter and procrastination for my college roommate/BFF and me. We would be sitting at our desks in our tiny dorm room when one of us would hear the other first snickering, then laughing loudly and uncontrollably, and the other would ask: “Are you reading GFY? OH MY GOD IS THERE A NEW POST UP???” We now look forward to Fug Madness on an annual basis (even if we don’t always agree who should go the distance to #1!), and if one of us gchats the other with news of a “Fug the Fromage” posting, well, there go both our work afternoons. (And, though we certainly didn’t need anything more to make us love the site, as proud Notre Dame grads, we were that much more stoked when we learned that Heather was a fellow alum. :D) Congrats again on a great decade and hoping for many more!

    Congratulation FugGirls from a long-time follower (at least 8+ years). I first heard about your blog from a list-icle in a UK newspaper…checked you out and have been dropping by daily ever since. The blog has definitely evolved over the years and, while I don’t laugh as much as I used to, I still appreciate all that you do, the quality of your writing and the wonderful community. It’s a comfort to know so many link-minded people are out there looking for a laugh to get through the day or a tough time. For a site devoted to such silliness you’ve actually achieved something of great integrity and value. Cheers M’Dears!

    All the feels I feel indeed! God how I love both you girls and your charming sense of humor. I look forward to your commentary on the clothes of pop culture more than any other news of the world, parenthetically not News of the World because WTF. And yes I forced the word parenthetically into a sentence because I love your use of the word. You’re both delightful and you make even the best of days better. Keep writing, and I wish you all the success pop culture can bring you.

I’ve been a proud citizen of Fug Nation since year one and I’ve loved celebrating all your success — the site, the books, the guest blogs on some of my other favorites sites — you’re two of the funniest, most creative, and talented writers I’ve had the pleasure to read. Even better, you’re both two of the nicest girls I’ve never met, but I feel like you’re old friends — cheers to the next decade — may it be filled with sparkle!

    Happy 10th anniversary, you two!! Like many others, I’ve been reading…since close to the beginning (I started at twop :)). I can’t believe it’s been 10 years, but they’ve been amazing, funny, Pacey- and Intern George-filled years. I also have to say that , while there isn’t a post or feature I don’t enjoy on this site (and the advice! NAB! Tights are not pants!), I adore the Friday link round-up (and now royals round up!). You make Fridays extra amazing and special.

    Hallmark says the modern 10th anniversary present is diamonds, but all I can offer is a gif of Joan Collins…wearing diamonds (probably) and holding what can be imagined as a very large diamond :)

    I echo the sincere congratulations and true friendship behind all these posts. As has been written there are more important things to think about than clothes, but not when getting dressed for dinner. This site is about the clothes but so much more: beauty, lust, feminism, talent, humor, modern culture, good grammer! and the list goes on. 10 years does not happen without luck and a lot of work. I am glad that success has come to two such nice and interesting people. I look forward to sharing more in the future.

    Reading your posts is one of my daily pleasures, and you have helped me lots with my English (my eternal work in progress…). The best comments on the Internet are here, both on form and content. So so happy you opened up the comments again.

You have let me know what’s cool to watch, what’s cool to wear, and what’s cool to read. You have seen me through toddlerhood/childhood of my 2 kids, an international move, job move, breast biopsy, and horrible bosses. I’m so glad you’re still thriving and I can’t wait until my tween daughter can read your books! Viva Fug Girls!

    Congratulations ladies – 10 years feels like it has flown by. I’ve been reading since 2004 as well and it’s testament to your skill and humour that I haven’t dropped off ever during that time. GFY is one of my favourites sites to check, every single day.

    I also agree with everyone else here that the Fug Nation community that has developed over time has also contributed hugely to my enjoyment of the site. What a funny and cool group of people… I can only live in hope that one day there’s a massive party somewhere and we’re all there.

That detail I don’t remember. Though I seem to think it was Pamie who mentioned it in a GG recap) and heading right over to read it. I thought the name was so clever. And now… 10 years later, still checking in and loving your site, and your books!
