Ten Year Blogoversary Today!

Huzzah! I've been blogging for an entire decade now. Can you believe it?

Even Her Royal Highness the cat is kind of excited about this big milestone. Well, sort of. I guess.


No, she must be excited because she has offered to take us all out to dinner to celebrate! That's right . . .


Because blogs and blogoversaries simply cannot happen without readers! And some of you have stuck around here for a long, long time! Thank you for your friendship and loyalty!

Let's hope HRH picks a nice place to take us.


Most of the other diners will probably be felines, so be prepared . . . .


We must try not to point and stare!


I'm hoping the menu won't be entirely mice, fish, kibble and milk.


Or sushi, for that matter.


Would a pizza be too much to ask for?


And don't worry -- I'm bringing lots of money with me to pay for it all, just in case HRH's credit card gets rejected again. Now that I think of it, that seems to happen a lot, actually. Hmmmm.

Ten years is a very long time to have been blogging - well done, I think that you deserve some sort of medal or award, don't you?

Bob Johns said...

Woo Hoo Congrats I'm almost to the 10 year mark and that pizza cat for some reason freaks me out.

Rain said...

Happy Blogoversary Debra!!! 10 years, wow that is amazing! :) I love the funnies!!! :) I'll take the pizza please.

Harry Hamid said...

10 years in blog years is like 60 years in regular people years. Hardly anyone lasts 10 years but I am so glad you have!

I hope you get something better in celebration than hairballs or mice.

Leeanna Henderson said...

Oh, My Goddess!! Happy Bloboversary!!!
Time sure flies when you're having fun. I just celebrated 9 years this past spring. Amazing that our readers have stayed around with us for so long. I love that Grumpy credit card. "Please leave home without it." HAAHAHAAHAHAHAHAAAA!!!

Woot! You're amazing! Keeping it up - uh, keeping us highly entertained and informed for a full decade! CONGRATULATIONS, Debra. I'm grateful for our connection. Yeah, for HRH too. But she already knows this.
Hugs.

DEZMOND said...

Congrats! Mine will be ten next year :) but I remember you being there almost from the beginning. I don't remember who visited whom first, Debs.

Parnassus said...

Hello Debra, Wow, congratulations on ten years! Although it does make me feel bad for those years in which I had not yet discovered you blog, and missed all the fun.

Birdie said...

10 years is a long time to be blogging. I have found that the toughest part of blogging is people don’t often stick around.

Happy 10!

Norbert is on his way. Wait. Nope. He says it’s too cold to go out and he planned to lick his ass today.

Cal's Canadian Cave of Coolness said...

Oh my dear friend. Congratulations. I have done ten years next week. LOL. We started at exactly the same time. I appreciate your support and perspective though I rarely comment here. I don't want to be lost in the crowd. And who gets so many comments anyways? Not that I am jealous or anything. It's not that.

Janie Junebug said...

Cue the music, I'm gonna sing: Happy Blogoversary to you, Happy . . . I think you get the idea.

Love,
Janie

Susan Kane said...

Happy 10th! The traditional wedding anniversary is tin. But for a blog? Something better, like a cheesecake.

I loved the cat pizza, and all the other cat 'toons. Food plays a big part there.

^.^ said...

Happy Anniversary, friend D … Much love, cat.

lady M said...

10 Years - that's impressive. Your blog is still as fresh as ever!

Happy 10 years girl! I started in 2009, so I'm one away from you!
I don't know how we connected, but I'm so happy we did! You are truly a pleasure!! Big Hugs to you and HRH! LOL!

Contrary Guy said...

Happy Bloggerversary, it's hard work to maintain a blog. As one long term blogger to another, congratulations.

Elsie Amata said...

Ten years?! Happy Blogoversary! That's awesome. To think, you've had this one blog for ten years, while I've had four in seven...and now after this latest thing with the comments, I'm toying with the idea of moving again! Geez Louise!
