iReport is three

2006 photo courtesy James Christie; 2009 courtesy Wendy Serafin


It's August, and as usual on iReport, the sweltering heat is turning up photos of delirious-looking squirrels stretched out cold in the hot, hot sun. Which means one thing: it must be time to celebrate a birthday!


iReport turned three on August 2, and just in time for a belated birthday post, Wendy Serafin shared a pic of what looks like a very pooped squirrel trying to chill out on her Napierville, Illinois, back porch.


Wendy's photo is just one in a long line of squirrely iReports. Believe it or not, the very first iReport on CNN was James Christie's picture of a very hot squirrel suffering through a heat wave in Kokomo, Indiana, back in August 2006.


We've come a long way since then -- breaking news, exclusive reporting, and fresh perspectives from around the world are on iReport every single day -- but sometimes nothing beats a snapshot to tell the story of the day, even if the story is just "it's hot."


Happy belated, iReport. Here's to many, many more.

Happy birthday iReports!  I have been an iReporter for a year now and love the posts from the absolutely insane to the cute and cuddly!  I love that I can voice my own oppinion about something at any time.  I love that if I have something that I want to share with the world I can just upload it into my iReport and suddenly the world is reading it!  I love that it reaches throughout the world and we are able to experience the views, opinions and simply the lives of people all around this planet!  Thank you CNN for this and I hope many years of crazy and interesting iReports in information to come!!
