Some cake for our 5th Anniversary

View Comments(0)

You can't have a big celebration like a fifth anniversary without cake, can you? We didn't think so, either, so we got a cake. A big cake. Too much for our small team, so we shared with the rest of the company.

Tim suggested we create a timelapse video of the cake cutting, so we did. It actually turned out to be a bit of an ordeal, so I added in some color commentary. Enjoy!

A look back at five great years for - For five years and counting.

Today is's Fifth Anniversary! Although our site existed in some form or another before then, it's been five years since we launched ourselves as a retail site. And what a journey it has been. In that time, we've changed rapidly and grown dramatically. Let's take a look back at how things have evolved.

We've changed our look quite a bit

When we launched in 2007, the site looked a lot different than it does now. For one thing, there was a lot less emphasis on blue, grey, and red, which we currently feature throughout the site. Instead, there was a lot more green and yellow. In a revision from early 2008, we dispensed with some of the green and began to move toward the blue that would later become a big part of the site for a long time. During this time we also launched our affiliate program. layout from our launch in September 2007.
The layout at launch. layout as of January 2008.
Revision from January 2008.

By mid-2008, the time had come for a major makeover. Enter bluepalooza. Everywhere you Blue logo, blue header, blue gradients. Can you guess our favorite color from that time? Hint: It started with the letter "B." Of course, by early 2009, things started to change again. For the first time, gray started to peek through and the On Sale Now section gained some seasonal color.
