About this Happiness Blog

Welcome to the Happsters, a blog about happiness. I believe that happiness comes when you focus on the 3 G’s: Gratitude, Growth & Giving, so I focus a lot on these three elements of a happy life in my writing. I’m all about supporting others, appreciating everything I have, continuing to learn and grow, and striving to help others. Happy to have you here ♥

About the Author

My name is Kelli & I live in Cardiff By the Sea, CA. I recently completed the “Science of Happiness” 10 week course through UC Berkeley. I love learning about ways to make ourselves happier and thinking of new ways to spread happiness. I graduated from USC in 2010 and started the Happsters in January of 2013 when I saw volunteers from an organization called “Happier Boston” holding up happy signs for travelers at a train station and handing out oranges to anyone who wanted them. It occurred to me that the world would be a much better place if we put happiness at the forefront of our lives and went out of our way to spread happiness to other people who needed a boost. So I created a movement to do just that. I hope you’ll join me on this happiness journey! Questions or comments? Email me at happsters@gmail.com.

A few fun facts about me:

♥ Community is incredibly important to me, both online and offline, and is a big part of the reason that the Happsters has become such a meaningful part of my life. I’ve met the BEST people through this happiness movement and I am so grateful for all of you.

♥ I loooooove a good quote and think that a simple sentence has the potential to change how we view the world. I share quotes every day on my Instagram page.

♥ One of the activities that makes me happiest is taking sunset strolls around my little beach town. I go on these walks most days after work.

♥ Sandwiches are my favorite meal and I eat them every day – sometimes multiple times a day – and avocados are my literal jam (on everything).

♥ My favorite game is Tetris and my favorite sport is ping-pong.

♥ I took guitar lessons after college for 6 months and came out only learning half of Eric Clapton’s song “Tears in Heaven.”

♥ Kittens are an instant happiness boost for me and I look up pictures of random kittens daily.

♥ I like to think of myself as crafty, but my husband ends up finishing most of my projects.

P.S. I started the Happsters for fun and have a full-time job (at ClubConnect), so I try to get back to everyone as quickly as possible. Please be patient with me :). Sending you love!

  1. Wow, I’m super grateful that you found my blog. What you’ve done here is really extraordinary. On my site, I talk about how millenials should rise above what’s expected of them by finding what makes them happy and fills them with purpose. What you’re doing is so cool because I could totally see a movement forming with this project! I totally look forward to reading your posts and seeing how you spread The Happster Message.

    Much Love and Light,
    Jenni

    P.S. If it’s okay with you, I’d love to become an official happster. 🙂

  3. What a nice blog and project to share Kelli! 🙂 I also love help and make other people happy, as well as when others make me happy.
    Bests wishes from Zurich!

  4. So Kelli, you decided to join the small clan of Uncle Spike followers, sometimes known as The Spikey’s…. That makes me a happy blogger now – I really appreciate you making that special mouse click.

    Hope you like my upcoming posts and if you get bored one day, maybe you’ll enjoy trawling through some of my older stuff too.

    If you have any likes, dislikes or suggestions about my blog, just let me know, either through ‘comments’ or via email. Always welcome reader input 🙂

    Have a great old day…

  5. Thanks for following my blog! I have just recently began blogging and I’m still unsure as to where I want to take it, but I’m taking it one post at a time and hope I find my way 🙂

    I’m so glad I got a a chance to look through your blog, I think this movement you want to start is amazing and I am all for supporting it!

    Good luck!

  6. Thank you so much for following me – and I’m so glad you did because I LOVE your blog. What a powerful message… you’re an inspiration. Cheers to spreading the happy! 😉

      • Just read your “about” page again… have you ever considered doing a little movement like the Boston peeps? If you ever want to try to organize something (like the handing out oranges) give me a shout and maybe we can collaborate. How cool would it be in a few years to have little happster posses all over the country doing something like this? Talk about making the world a happier place! 😀

  7. I’m loving your mission. This could potentially become 1 of my favorite sites. Thanks for doing this. By the way, I LOVE your pictures. Both are very unique. Glad to be connected to you. 🙂

  14. Wow, Kelli! I too am a Happiness Blogger and in the process of writing my first book on Happiness Experiments for 20 Somethings. I happened upon your blog because I have been throwing out ideas for what to call my followers as I am branding the next phase of participants in the experiments and thought of Happsters! Lucky I can’t be mad it’s already taken, since this site is quite darling and I am 100% behind your message. I would love to team up for a post or webinar sometime in the coming months! Check out my blog @ whatshappyning.com and I will be in touch soon! Cheers to your success girl!
