Anniversary Countown: Celebrating ten years on Rupert-Grint.us!

Icon 3July 7th, 2014, 0:24am– In 10 days, Rupert-Grint.us will have its tenth anniversary, and to celebrate this awesome event, we are starting our 10-day Birthday Countdown today!
Each day is dedicated to one year, and we will take a look back with you how the site grew, changed, and became what it is today. Ten staff members (both former and present) will share their personal stories of how they came to work on the site and what their dearest memories are. And we would like to see you participate in our celebration by voting in our ten polls, and sharing your memories in the comments.

We are starting today with the year 2004, when everything began shortly after the release of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. Our webmistress Tao will tell you about her intention behind creating RG.us and what it means to her ten years later.

2004

Don’t forget to come back tomorrow for the next part of our countdown!

UPDATE: For our birthday party, we have decorated our site with a new birthday themed layout, with images of our staff members meeting Rupert Grint, because these were obviously the most amazing moments for us. A huge thanks to Courtney from AutumnSkyDesigns for the layout!

Okay, I’m a little biased, but I chose Rave Reviews since it’s my baby (along with the help of Jesi and Ivana!) and I’ve watched it become as huge as it is. :D

I can’t believe it’s been 10 years. If you had told me when I first started the site that we’d be at this point, I’d have called you crazy! Not because I didn’t in Rupert’s awesomeness, or my willingness to devote 10 years to such an amazing actor, but because I never would have imagined the website becoming anything!

Oh, would you look at that! :) What a lovely bouquet of hyper-happy girls around the man of the hour!
Well done, babes! If I was any younger, I’d be green from envy, but this way I can just say: good for you! You should definitely try to have many more of those taken! :)
