Happy Birthday to Us!

Tuesday, August 31, 2010
Loretta and Susan reporting:

Today* we are one! 

That is, not us specifically (even if we are both Geminis), but our blog. When we began the Two Nerdy History Girls last year, we decided to write what we wanted to read, and hope that might be a few others out there who might like to read it, too. Turns out there are a great many of you: we've had over 100,000 page views, and our 250th follower just signed up this week. We're delighted that we've delighted you. Long live Nerdy Girl History, and many, many thanks for your support and your enthusiasm, your interest and your comments!

* We realize that there may be those who will quibble with this birthday, since a few posts in our archive date from earlier in the summer of 2009. These were our trial blogs, shared with a small, trusted, and indulgent audience while we were trying to figure out what the hoo-hah we were actually doing. We went live to the world on September 1, 2009, which is why we decided that was our true birthday. Besides, if the Queen of England can celebrate her birthday in June because the weather's better, we figured we could choose September 1.

Happy Birthday Ladies!
The blog is wonderful and informative and I love it!

Loretta, I just read my first book by you last week, 'Your Scandalous Ways'. I really liked it. I learned a lot about italian culture without even knowing it! I started classes today and in my Italian class, we were asked if we knew about the history of the word Casa in italian culture. (it was hard to hide my geeky smirk as I rose my hand, LOL) Can't wait to read more by you and something from Sus too!

Happy, Happy Birthday!

I love your reasoning by the way, for your decision on the date ;o)

I don't follow too many blogs through the friend connect thing, but I bet you've got ten times the followers through RSS readers.

But for you two, I'll google friend ;o)

Thank you, everybody! We feel so fortunate to have found a community with whom we can share our obsessions and nerdy discoveries and incredibly silly videos.
