Answers to our photos at three are now on the Competitions Page
It's the History Girls' blog's third birthday today! Unbelievable. And what a three years it has been. HGs have come and gone since July 1st 2011, we have had weddings, widowings, babies born and even a book: Daughters of Time was published in March this year.
Of course we have had many individual books published in that time too (nine in my case) and as individuals have had all kinds of triumphs in terms of travels, prizes and other recognition.
We have had nearly a million hits and now have more in the US than in the UK (even over 4,000 in the Ukraine).
So today is one for celebration and we are having a party. Crack open the Prosecco and cut the cake (GF for me) and join us in a fun party game.

Some of us have braved putting pictures up of ourselves aged three. Some are in black and white but this isn't a clue! The first three Followers to match all of the following to their younger selves will receive signed books from us. Send your answers to: firstname.lastname@example.org Do remember to check on the Competitions page on 8th July for the answers and to see if you were right. To make it a bit easier, we've linked the names to the History Girls' websites.
