On The Blog Week 25 & 2016

Today is the last day in 2016!

So I decided to use this last "On the Blog" Post to present a Top 10 of the most viewed posts this year. 

But first, what was happening at the blog this week? There was only one post, a recipe for a Red Bell Pepper Soup With Feta Cheese and Ground Meat. A very long name for a very delicious dish!

2016 was a year of change for me.
In January, I watched a movie, Old Fashioned, and started reading the companion devotional, The Old Fashioned Way, in spring. They both changed my attitude towards relationships and helped me to confront myself with my past choices and mistakes. In summer, I studied the Girl Defined book with Haley from The Long Way To Go and a few other ladies. It was so much fun! And in September, I finally decided that I wanted to give religion, Christianity, a try. So far, I don't regret my decision. On the contrary, it helps me a lot and I have been tremendously blessed ever since! In the new year, I plan on telling you how that all happened. 

On July 12th this year, I started my blog. It is still a very small blog, but I am happy the way it is and thankful for every visitor. Within six months, I've already published 75 posts and had 2,492 page views in total! 

And without further ado, here are the 10 most viewed posts in 2016!

10. The Best Chocolate Cake Ever

This recipe has had 27 views (see, it's a small blog), but it's one of the two recipes in this top 10. And it really is a delicious cake, so if you haven't read that post yet, make sure to check it out!

3. On Testdriving People

In this post, I tried to explain why it is absolutely disrespectful to "testdrive" people on a first date, that means, to sleep with them to determine whether they're worth getting to know them. This post has had 63 page views.

A few thoughts on the right moment to say those three words. It has been read by 65 people!

1. The Challenge: Wearing Skirts and Dresses for a Whole Month (or maybe a little longer?)

 I never expected this post to be the most popular on the blog, but it has amazing 104 page views! I'm so glad you liked my challenge. 

Thank you for reading my blog in 2016! I've already got lots of ideas for new posts in 2017 and I hope you'll stop by in the new year as well!

Happy New Year!
