Happy blogiversary, Nancy’s Baby Names!
I’m a day late, but that’s ok — at least I remembered it this year. :)
I launched Nancy’s Baby Names on March 6, 2006, so yesterday the blog officially turned nine years old.
Many thanks to everyone who reads along, and especially to those who comment and send emails. You guys are awesome. You make this worthwhile.
That image above comes from an old issue of LIFE. I bookmarked it, not knowing how I’d ever work it into a post, but now I know.
It’s 6-year-old Nancy Joyce Darken of Chicago, standing on her head, tap-dancing on the ceiling of a wooden box-like apparatus with her name (and my name!) at the top. “She did this for a Chicago radio broadcast June 13, took both the studio and her audience by storm.”
My hope for year 10 is that I can continue to entertain you guys just like Nancy Joyce entertained those radio listeners nearly 80 years ago. :)
Have a great weekend, everyone!
