To help you, I've made the question multiple choice. Choose the answer you think is correct.

a. Nine is the answer to 4x4
b. Nine is my shoe size
c. Nine is the number of months I've been blogging

Even Gracie, my cat, can answer this.....if you answered "C" ......you're correct!  Hard to believe, but I am nine months in to this great blogging adventure and I'm linking up with Julie Wunder of Running In A Skirt for her monthly blog recap link party. So without further ado, let's get this blog recap party started!

Most Viewed Post


Without a doubt, folks enjoyed my fun post where I dressed for Dancing With The Stars. The only thing missing from this post was the music....and a dance partner.....come on Mr.thisandthat....let's dance!!

Food And Style


A close second was my post that included casual Saturday Fashion..


and my yummy biscuits with a nostalgic family story thrown in for good measure. What could be bad? 

Devotional


I only did one devotional post this month based on Galatians 6:4-5 in which I discuss looking at the glass as half full or half empty. This post generated interesting discussion for sure. 

The Biggie

Welcome Sign, Garden Sign, Garden Decor, Welcome Home

For me, though, the most exciting post was this one.....in which I expressed my delight at having purchased my own domain! A big step for me as I move forward as a blogger!!

To Recap

This has been an amazing month for me as a blogger for sure.  Nine months for a mother usually means coming to term, labor and delivery. Well....for me, I feel like I have been "laboring" for the last nine months to grow as a blogger and I certainly feel that I have come "full term" this month as I finally felt comfortable enough to venture forward into owning my own domain. It has been a labor of love for me these last nine months and I hope to keep "delivering" quality content in the months ahead. Here's hoping you will continue to follow me in my journey. Know how much I appreciate my readers!

Please remember to visit the "Between the Lines" 10 week series each Tuesday at Katherine's Corner. I will be featured next Tuesday, May 3rd, so please be sure to check out the series and my post. 

Please leave a comment. Thanks for taking my number nine quiz. You get an......A+!!!

Until Next Time,
Debbie
