My 5 Year Blogaversary!

Since I still wasn't feeling well, I did not get this posted in time. But let's pretend like I did {I'll even backdate it} - LOL! So that means YESTERDAY TODAY is my 5 Year Blogaversary!!! Woo Hoo!!! That's like...1/20th of a century! :)

It's an amazing feeling to have been blogging for 5 years! That's a long time to keep up with something, especially for me! I think that might even be an example of my 2013 One Word: Diligence! :) How many posts is that? Well, with blogging breaks and all, it comes out to 943 published posts. Getting close to 1000 - yay!

Thank you for being here and for reading my blog!! Without you, I wouldn't be here. Really. Just knowing that somebody is out there reading {even if you don't comment!} helps me to keep on going. I truly appreciate you.

I thought it would be fun to share a few past posts in groups of 5 to reflect back a little. And yes, I thought 5 groups of 5 would be cool, but I thought it was just too much - so I went with 3. You're welcome. :)

5 Top-Viewed Posts {That aren't recipes or giveaways}
Always interesting to look back at what's been written. What kinds of posts might be written in the next 5 years? I really don't know! Maybe we can find out together! :)

Whether or not you're entering the giveaway, I'd love to read your comments on any feedback you have if you've been following along here for a while. 

Or tell me about a favorite post I did, or a series that you liked, or a recipe that you found here and use all the time! 

If you're new here {or even if you're not!} - what do you see that makes you want to come back again?  

Thanks again for reading my blog and making 5 years possible! Hugs to all!! :)

Are you a blogger or do you want to start a blog? Start one now or restart one or post more on the blog you have! If I can stick around for 5 years, then I know you can manage a few blog posts! You can do it! :)

This makes Post 7 of my 22-post challenge, though I'm off by a day so will have to double up somewhere!

Have a blessed day friends!


  1. Happy Blogoversary my friend. Yay!! I've probably read and commented on at least 80% of those posts. LOL!
    You know I always loved your Tea for Tuesday or whatever it was called. LOL!
    Big I think blog years are like dog years and if that's the case you're in your prime size hugs to you.
    Hoping you're feeling better.

    1. I commented before I read the rafflecopter question. LOL! I've been reading for almost as long as you've been blogging.

  2. Happy Blogiversary my friend. I will join you in the 5 years of blogging in July. I am pretty sure I found your blog early on, so I am going to say I've been reading you forever. I love you, love that I got to meet you in person and love your blog.

    Now about Rafflecopter, since you asked, I only like it if the entries are minimal. But when I click on the first entry, and there drop downs like 20 other entires, well, I get all ADHD and leave the page. It makes me nervous!

    Have a beautiful day!

  3. Congrats on the 5 years and so not an entry :) Still need to meet up with you since you are local. But I understand with life being busy. I need to bake more things for my monkeys.

  4. I don't know how long I've been reading your blog. Looks like May of 2009 was the first time I linked up with your Chocolate Friday. Wow... 4 years!

  5. Brand new reader, loving the blog!

  6. Hi Lisa, I just discovered your blog - happy Blogaversary! All your treats look delicious..you know I'll be reading about the coffee break in a box among others..

  7. Happy Blogaversary! I've enjoyed your posts lately as you have challenged yourself to blog away! Keep going! :-)
