10-Year Blog Anniversary


Ten years?! This month marks one decade since we started the Duggar Family Fan Blog. We have thoroughly enjoyed sharing the latest Duggar news with our faithful followers from across the globe. Since our first post on December 26th, 2009, our blog has received more than 233 million page views from readers in nearly every country.

We are beyond grateful for each and every one of you, and we are grateful to the Lord for the opportunity he has given us to create a positive online source for Duggar updates. You can read more about us and our blogging journey on our About Us page.

Happy New Year to all! Here's to 10 more years.

-Lily and Ellie
Bloggers and friends of the Duggars

  2. 10 years! Yay! I remember when you started; Ellie was in high school homeschooling, and was sharing of the benefits of it. And now, married with a little one. Learning from the Duggars along the way; the good, the bad, the ugly, and everything in between, right? Thanks for putting up with all the flack and rumors that came your way, and for continuing to research what's good to post, what's not so good, and learning along the way. Keeping you in my prayers. Happy New Year!

    2. I think you are confusing “destiny” with arranged marriage.

    3. Thank you for pointing out Lauren! I have looked at this picture before and never noticed that Lauren is in it!

  23. Thanks -- this has been a fun blog to read. With all the negative comments that get through, I can only imagine the ones you weed out!

  24. Ellie, This blog has to be very time consuming, and fans certainly appreciate your dedication. You do a great job updating us. It’s good that you are fair with comments that inspire interesting discussions. Thank you so much.

  25. Congrats on your 10 years of coverage. My one question is can somebody identify the people in the picture. That makes it easier for me when I read something Duggar related. Again Congrats on this achievement.

  26. That's quite an accomplishment, Ellie! What made you do it? :)
    I can imagine that at the beginning your mother was the one directing it, while now it must be mainly you, isn't it?

    1. I wonder if Ellie's mother is still involved as I noticed when Ellie is busy her husband takes care of the posts and comments,they probably left the same name on the blog even though Lilly left,maybe she started another job.

  27. You’ve done a great job!
