Friday Fun Facts for My Blogiversary Week!

If you have been following my blog, you may know that this month is my blog's 1 year "blogiversary". It's hard to believe that a year ago I started my blog as a way to document all the birthday cakes I have made for my children.  But, over the past year I have blogged about other things that I am passionate about.  I have enjoyed posting about my Catholic faith, homeschooling, Natural Family Planning, recipes that are easy and delicious, giveaways, and everything else in between.

I thought it would be fun to display the most popular posts from this past year and if you haven't read some of these posts, just click on the title to link to them.  Under each title is the date I posted, the # of comments per post, and how many pageviews the post has received in the past year.

If you use blogger did you know you could get stats like this for your blog?  Click on "Design" on your Blogger Account then go to the "Stats" tab at the top.  The "Stats" tab is on the same screen as your "Posting" tab when you write new posts for your blog.  

I hope you enjoy visiting some of my most popular posts on my blog from this past year!

It's amazing how much NOBH has grown, and I know God uses you in the lives of many women, especially those who are raising children. May God continue to bless your family and your ministry to all those you come in contact with. Blessings, Tracy!

HI Annita!
I'm honored to have you as one of my first followers when I was just starting out with the blog world! It's been so fun to get to know you through all your encouraging and kind comments/emails. It's amazing how many wonderful ladies, like yourself, that I have "met" through blogging. It sure does make the world a smaller place filled with blessings! I hope your hubby is having a blessed Father's Day with your beautiful family! God bless!

Hi Anna-Marie,
So far you are the first (but I hope not the last) bloggy friend I have met in person and what a wonderful experience to have met you within my first year of starting my blog! It's been fun following your family's adventures and getting to know you better with each post and monthly hop! Thank you for your support and encouragement! Hope your hubby and Dad are having a blessed Father's Day today!
