We’re Turning Ten!


Everyone has a story. What’s yours?

As they say back where I come from, who woulda thunk it? Ten years ago I was going through some personal “stuff,” had a few random, chance encounters, put it all out on social media, and then this happened. Sure, it was a little more complex than that, but that’s the gist of it.

Truth be told, this anniversary kind of snuck up on me and I’m not sure what is more overwhelming – the fact that we started all this 10 years ago or that The Personal Stories Project happened at all.
The road hasn’t always been easy but it’s definitely been worth it. And we couldn’t do what we do without the help of our community.

Let’s take a walk down memory lane for a minute. You can CLICK HERE to read my original story, and HERE to learn more about us and watch our “About” video.

So cheers to ten years! And thank you for joining us for the ride.

Best Regards, Charles
