Blogiversary Day: Looking Back at Five Years of Shorty Stories!

ShareYes, we’re five years old today!  You can find our very first post here.  Many of our earliest posts were image-free, since the site was more of a rant about petite issues blog than one that was style-related.  I wish I can get a screen capture of what the blog looked like when it first […]
