1 year ago today I was part of a 4-person team who launched a new one-stop fan site Hypable.com. Andrew Sims, Richard Reid, Mason DeWitt and I all worked around the clock to launch Hypable on April 25, 2011. For the first couple months, before we had a staff, Andrew, Mason and I would cover ALL of the fandom news. Looking back I have no idea how we did it! My friends were patient with me even when I would bring my laptop to their houses for movie night. I had to always be prepared.
Hypable isn’t on track to become the next Facebook.com. But as a professional, it’s the best feeling in the world when you see something go from an idea to a huge success. A year later we have 10,000 Facebook fans, almost 10,000 Twitter followers and site traffic that surprises everyone every day.
So, if you’ve ever visited Hypable.com, or shared a link, or retweeted a tweet: thank you. You’ve been instrumental in helping the site become a success and allowing me to do what I love every day!
As we say in the Hypable staff group: hypabirthday, Hypable!
