**It's The BBHQ 10 Year Blogoversary!**

Epic Monday Greetings Pawesome Pals 

Welcome to another week at BBHQ and a furry special post.

It is exactly ten years ago today that we published our very first post from BBHQ, and although the original post was changed in 2019 and updated, the fact remains that it was the start of our cat blogging journey. And in that time we have written over 2000 posts, 2059 to be exact and that's a lot of words for a bunch of heathen cats to write.

Who knew that we'd still be writing the blog after ten years, and averaging 200 posts per year, that's a new post every 1.825 days, wow, that's some dedication!

And along the way, we've met the best peeps and cats mew could ever wish to meet in a lifetime, so not only is this a celebration of our milestone achievement, but it's also a celebration of friendship within the pet blogging community because without that community and all our wonderful epically epic readers, visitors and furiends we wouldn't have made it this far. So in essence without mew, we wouldn't be here, so thank mew furry much for your continued support and loyalty.

When the blog originally started it was just me, Basil, but then everypawdy else wanted a turn and it soon became a furmily affair.

Here is the exact text from my very first post at 20:17pm on the 27th of June 2012:

Greetings, salutations and many purrs to all my wonderful furriends in Cyberspace!

It's marvellous that my human aka Cathrine Garnell has finally given in to my constant pestering and made me my very own blog. I know that I have my own Website, FaceBook Page, MySpace Page and a myriad of other things going off, but I felt left out without having my very own blog.

You can use the links in the sidebar on the to visit me around the Interwebs, as I tend to get about a bit and you can follow my human via Twitter and Pinterest too directly from my page and if you want to follow her elsewhere, visit her blog by clicking the link below: 

Cathrine Garnell's Blog (this blog is no longer active) 

So here it is, my new blog on the Interwebs and I do hope that you visit often!

And here's a little tidbit that I bet mew didn't know, I didn't actually get my own purrsonal log in until the 23rd of May 2013, after the P.A. decided that I was dedicated enough to warrant one.

And then we started to write our serialised stories which began with: 

The Pink Flamingo Saga in 2014

Sadly the P.A. hasn't written anything since her accident in 2019 when our Mogwarts Adventure should have been serialised. She feels really guilty she hasn't been able to share anything new for so long, but maybe this is the kick up the backside she needs to make it happen.

We used to make a lot of collages for our Sunday Selfies posts.

Just trying to get new photos of The B Team each week was a job in itself! MOL

And to finish today's little celebration here's a new furmily pawtrait of all The B Team in our secret bunker at BBHQ.

Just seeing us all in the bunker is rather inspirational and makes us want to go on an adventure! 

Thanks for joining us on a trip down memory lane and we hope mew liked seeing some of the older images today.  And we can't believe how much fun stuff we saw, it's been a real treat and reminds us why we do what we do at BBHQ! MOL

We'll be back on Wednesday with another Midweek News Round-Up and the winner of Fudge's Birthday Giveaway!

Have an epically epic day
