Happy Second Anniversary to Us (plus More About That Hurricane)

Wednesday, August 31, 2011
Susan & Loretta reporting:

Somehow or another, we've managed to reach the second anniversary of the Two Nerdy History Girls, and we can't quite believe it. We began the blog to entertain one another, and with the hope that there might be a few other nerdy-history-folk out there who might like to join us for the ride. To our amazement, there turned out to be a great many of you: we have 582 members through Blogger and 1740 followers on Twitter. Most astonishing of all is that, over the last two years, we've had over 300,000 page views! We're celebrating, yes, but we're raising our glasses to you, too. Many, many thanks for making our success possible, and we hope you'll continue to be part of the party.

As for Hurricane Irene: as Loretta noted on Monday, Irene raged, and Susan's electricity meekly gave in. Here in my corner of Pennsylvania, we were lucky not to have the heartbreaking damage that this storm has caused in other regions, but we did loose a good many large trees that seemed determined to use power lines to break their fall. The tree, right, fell near enough to my house to knock out my neighborhood's electricity over the weekend, and we didn't have our power restored until yesterday morning.

As a result, the TNHG have been silent on Twitter over the last few days, and the Breakfast Links never had a chance.  But we're back tweeting again, and, weather willing, look for a fresh helping of Breakfast Links this Sunday. Whew!

Happy anniversary Loretta & Susan! Congratulations on a fantastic blog!
Glad you made it through despite "Irene." In my little corner of the world we have been told not to expect power until September 4th. Argh!

You guys are a double threat: Love your blog AND love your books! Don't know how you do it but I hope you keep doing both for a long time to come. Congratulations!

My coffee just wasn't the same Sunday morning, but I'm glad to know it was only the electricity and not something much worse.

And Happy, Happy Anniversary! I raise my champagne filled flute to many more. :o)
