Sunday is super in more than one way

First photo of me posted in Femulate.
Sunday is a big day.

It's Super Bowl Sunday and my favorite football team is in it!

Sunday is also the 10th anniversary of Femulate!

I cannot believe that I have been blogging Femulate for ten years. Where did the time go?

Reviewing my posts from 2007 when I started the blog was interesting and even revealing.

Back then, I still went by the name "Staci" and if anyone asked, I admitted to being a "plain vanilla crossdresser," but in my heart, I really thought I was a woman.

Would you believe that I did not post a photo of myself in the blog until seven weeks after starting Femulate!!!

During the first month, Femulate averaged 58 hits per day. During the first year, 250 hits per day. (Today, the blog averages 6,000 hits per day.)

Over ten years, Femulate has had its ups and downs and so have I. During the downs, I have considered giving up the blog and doing something else with my time. But about once a week, I receive an e-mail from a reader who thanks me for the blog.

Some readers remain closeted, but thank me for allowing them to escape from the closet vicariously through my adventures. Other readers say the blog helped them accept themselves and to begin living their lives outside the closet as the women they really are.

And so it goes.

  1. Stana
    Thanks for all great Reads you have given me. Also great to have met you

  2. your blog has been helpful to many and has encouraged them to get out and be themselves. You should be very proud...

  3. Congratulations. Lets look forward to many more years of our regular dose of Femulate.
    It will be an interesting game. Most likely I will be home doing some cooking and I do intend to 'dress' for the occasion.

  4. Excellent blog to start the day off!

  5. Dear Stana,

    Thank You for the 10 years of FEMULATE. It's the only TG blog I check EVERY day. I would love to meet you. But my budget will preclude me from traveling to New England or any TG conferences for the next couple of years. I know your situation precludes you from traveling to Florida, and the wonderful Southern Comfort Conference (SCC) which was held in the Ft. Lauderdale area in 2015 and 2016 sadly is no more. But who knows, sweetie, maybe some day we will meet in person.



  6. Thank You for your blog Stana I enjoy each new post and the photos too

  7. I've said it before ~ I want to be YOU when I grow up.

    1. I am happy at many good friends I love dresses and he's too I love I love my johns nightgowns

  8. Stana, I always enjoy your blog and photos. Thank you for maintaining it all these years.

    Now as to Sunday, Falcons RISE UP!

  9. Stana:

    Dare I add . . . . . . "You ROCK." Being an avid reader of Femulate, someone who has benefited greatly from your example, someone who had many childhood thoughts and feelings similar to yours, and being familiar enough with the ham world to truly appreciate how much you extended yourself in that community -- allow me to humbly thank you for being the trailblazer that you are.

    You make us proud.

    Thank you, Stana, for all you do.


  10. Congratulations on reaching your 10 year Anniversary and thank you so much for your blog. Not sure how I would start my day without it. :)

  11. Happy Birthday! and congratulations, any Blog is a big commitment, a daily blog even more so and with all the extras you put in Femulate must take a lot of time and energy.

    I know that you have a big international readership, yours is just about the only blog that we all have in common (and often my biggest source of readers!)

  12. Heartiest congrats, dear, on your decade of achievement. Please keep being an inspiration to us.

  13. Congratulations on making a decade of blogging.

  14. Woo Hoo! Keep up the great work. I enjoy my daily visits to your little piece of the world.

    On a side note, did you see that the president has endorsed us wearing dresses? Maybe there is something to like about him!

  15. Wow!!!! Happy Anniversary :) An amazing accomplishment !!! :)
