Happy birthday to us! Nine years ago today, I launched Niners Nation as part of the SB Nation network (known as SportsBlogs Nation. I had started a small site on blogspot for a couple months leading up to it, but NN was really the formal start of my blogging life. And considering I am now 36, that means I have spent a quarter of my life running this site. That's certainly something!
People have joined the site at different times over the course of nine years, so plenty of you don't remember the early days of the site. Last year, I posted some screenshots of what the site has looked like over the years. You can play around and check out other iterations at the Web Archive. And as always, you can read every piece of front page content we've ever published in the site archive.
