Ten and a bit Years

Wow! I've been blogging for over 10 years!

I was sitting this morning doing officework, not my favourite thing to do, but essential in the grand scheme of my life. And it occurred to me that I've been writing this blog for a long time. Problem was I just couldn't remember how long, so back I went to my notes, and then to the posts archive on this blog and all of a sudden my very ordinary, rainy, cold, wintery Thursday morning turned into something special.

The first post on this blog, Debt Free, Cashed Up and Laughing went live on 4th January 2007 - that's over 10 years ago!

I have no idea how I could've missed such a milestone, but I did.

In that time I've published 2,638 blog posts.

The most popular blog post of all time is Miracle Spray, with 44,889 views.

The most visited page is MOO Cheapskates Washing Powder with 25,129 views.

Top 10 countries readers come from are:
Australia (whew! I'd hate Australia to not be at the top ;) )
United States
New Zealand
United Kingdom

I'm surprised by the stats. I'm stunned that my blog has lasted this long. Even I'll admit that blogging regularly, keeping you all up to date with the goings on in the Armstrong household, isn't my strong point. I'm a bit of a closed book, really I am, so sharing the nitty gritty of our lifestyle doesn't come easy to me.

So thank you.

Thank you for reading.

Thank you for commenting.

Thank you for taking the time to come back, time and time again.

Thank you for sharing with me.

Thank you for supporting my wacky ideas, even if they don't seem to make sense to you.

And thank you for making blogging just a little bit easier and a little bit fun for me.

Now I'm off to make a cake so we can celebrate tonight after our pizzas.
