Can you believe I started MSA 8 years ago this summer? I'm still amazed that what started as a healthy subscription box obsession and a DIY blog has grown into the destination and community that it is today!
I created MSA back in 2012 when I found myself hooked on Birchbox and POPSUGAR and started searching for help finding my next obsession-worthy subscription box. I was looking for a destination for people just as passionate about subscription boxes as me, and when I couldn’t find it, I decided to do my best to create it.
I started by trying every subscription box I could find, then taking photos, writing reviews, and even filming unboxings with my iPhone. Soon after, I added all the other things I wanted to talk about: spoilers, coupons (I LOVE a good deal), and news. I did this for months assuming I might just be writing a journal that only I was reading, and then one day, someone commented on a post! I couldn’t believe a kindred spirit had found me on the internet! I still remember the joy of the moment, and it is that feeling of connection and excitement around subscription boxes that makes MSA so special to me. My Subscription Addiction couldn’t exist without you, the community, and I am forever thankful for time you’ve spent with me here.
In addition to the community, MSA exists today because of the amazing team I’ve been able to work with for the past several years. From the reviewers across the country, to the team at the MSA’s home office, I have been so lucky to work with so many kind, talented, and passionate people. I’ve spent my days with a dream team and it’s been such a gift.
After 8 years of working to build the site I dreamed of so many years ago, Eric and I have decided to take a much needed break from the day-to-day at MSA. We’ll be leaving it in the trusted hands of our incredible team. Megan will be taking over my reviews (thank you, Megan!), and if you email [email protected], my team will be there to help you.
Thank you for such an amazing 8 years. Thank you for the comments, the spoiler tips, the photos, the kind emails, and the suggestions. Thank you for sharing a love of subscriptions with me!
I want this moment to be a celebration of you and subscription boxes and the special place we’ve created together. One of my favorite ways to celebrate is with giveaways, so it seems only fitting to kick this off with a chance to win some amazing prizes from our favorite brands. To celebrate 8 years, 8 winners will win a $100 gift card to FabFitFun. You can spend this on a new subscription, extend a current subscription, or use it on their Add-On or Edit sales!
