Today, “the little hashtag that could” turns THREE YEARS OLD! From an outsider’s perspective, it may seem like the creator of #CMchat, Jessica Northey, woke up one day, said aloud “today, I shall start an empire,” and did just that. Contrarily, that little lady who brought you this website and the hashtag that started it all has worked endlessly day in and day out to give that very perception.
Those of us on the inside who are aboard this train, hand-in-hand with Jessica, watch her pull all-nighters, sacrifice herself, and cast aside personal matters, all for the sake of providing us a place to call “home” and you a place to always feel welcome. When she began #CMchat, it was a solo endeavor, and over the past three years, she has built a dedicated staff who would do anything to see #CMchat succeed and would, likewise, do anything to see Jessica succeed. The part of her staff she affectionately calls “The Cadre” would like to take this opportunity to wish #CMchat a very Happy 3rd Birthday and offer our most enthusiastic and heartfelt CONGRATULATIONS to the girl who brought us all together and gifted us a crazy little family we couldn’t imagine life without.
@ScottyBredin: Happy three years to #CMchat creator, Jessica Northey! Who would have thought your twitter views that were done for fun would turn into all this? It’s been amazing working side by side with you for the last year. Can’t wait to see where we take this thing over the next three! Happy Birthday #CMchat and thanks to Jess for this amazing opportunity.

@Tim_Shank: Happy 3 years of #CMchat Jessica! You’re living proof that being a hard worker and having a big heart beings great things! I am in awe of everything we’ve pulled off in such a short time and it’s because we have an amazing leader who motivates us every day! Thank you for taking me along for the ride! Love you!
@JenSwirsky: Happy Birthday, #CMchat, and congratulations to Jessica, someone who inspires me day in and day out in so many ways! You are a visionary and a dreamer who says “I have an idea!” more times than we can count in a day; but what sets you apart from the pack is that you are also an innovator, a doer, a mover, and a shaker who actually makes those ideas realities. I feel so very blessed that you took a chance on this girl, adopted me into your #CMchat world and your world, and continue to believe in me every single day. I cannot wait to see what the next three years have in store for this crazy little family. Love you to the moon and back!

You truly are an inspiration and I am so grateful for the opportunity to work along side of you and the awesome team you have put together. I can’t wait to see where #CMchat will be one year from now!
Happy 3rd Birthday, #CMchat, and congratulations to the person who makes us all better writers, thinkers, dreamers, and believers, Jessica Northey! We love you!
