A Big Birthday! (Contest)

A Big Birthday! (Contest) | Name News | Scoop.it
That’s right, the Name Warehouse has been up and running for a year (well, almost, 9 days to go). That’s pretty darn remarkable, and I never would have guessed that I’d make it this long, much less end up with such a lovely group of individuals reading and supporting my content as wonderfully as all of you do. So thank you. I love all of your readership so incredibly much and I’m grateful for all of your participation in the various series, commenting opportunities, and form submission requests

How absolutely fitting is it that my 100th article will be one whose fate is primarily determined by my readers and published on New Years, although I haven’t decided if I’m going to go for the last minute of 2020 or the first minute of 2021 quite yet. Anyway, I’m so happy and proud of the little Name Warehouse we’ve b
