Gear Live Turns One Year Old!

Posted by Andru Edwards - Categories: Announcements

DescriptionThat’s right ladies and germs - Gear Live has now been ruining the minds of people everywhere for one full year. Looking back, it has gone by amazingly fast and has grown in readership just as quickly. Here are a few fun facts:

  • Our first article article was an interview with Scott Jordan, CEO and Founder of SCOTTeVEST.
  • Gear Live started as a hobby site that I did in my spare time, and over the last year, morphed into my full-time job.
  • We had 5653 unique visitors in our first month. Last month, we had over 350,000.
  • There was a time when the message boards received more traffic than the blog.
  • We started the site on MovableType, and switch to Expression Engine after about six months due to its immense flexibility.
  • We have posted 1176 articles, received 4582 comments and 92 trackbacks, and have gotten 1372 members in the last year.
  • If you weren’t around back then, here is a peek at what Gear Live used to look like.
  • A couple of months ago, Playfeed was born.

These are some of our most popular articles:

What about gifts? Glad you asked. To celebrate, we have a bunch of stuff we will be giving away - starting with a SCOTTeVEST TEC T-Shirt, which isn’t even available to the public yet. To win, simply tell us what your favorite Gear Live article has been from the past year in our comments section. Remember, as far as the U.S. goes, you have to be in it to win it - and a winner will be selected randomly.

Happy Freakin’ Birfday!
Congrats on one year, here’s to many more!

Favorite article was definitely the “10 reasons the PSP will suck”. It made me wait to buy it. Still haven’t bought it, but I may in the future… when someone figures out how to hack the games that is…

Happy Birthday, Gear Live! I absolutely love that cake! My personal favourite article was the Oto-Hime (Sound Princess) article. I never knew the extent of Japanese pride before that article.

I remember I even liked the article so much that I helped the author of the article polish it up a bit =)

Again, happy birthday, and many more to come!

Hooray for Gearlive!

My favorite article was the one where Gratis was proven legit. That brought lots of traffic to the site and started the free stuff madness. Good stuff.

My favorite article is the debate about the 1 button mouse that comes stock with MACS. I found it interesting that people actually perfer 1 button mouse then a 2 button mouse for macs.

MY favorite article was “The Top Ten Things You Need To Know About Sony’s PSP”

Because back then the fever of the psp was too high and every1 was interested on info about the psp

Happy b day GearLive

Congrats! and happy d-day!!!

I usually read every article, or at least skim them all, but if I had to pick a favorite I would probably choose the “Why Sony’s PSP Will Suck” one. Not because I thought the psp would suck, though I agreed with a lot of the negative points but mostly because it was funny following the discussions in the comments. Poeple reacted so silly and got so defensive/aggressive and were a little too pationate. Just good reading heheh.

But I also really liked the “trackable panties” article heheh.

And of course all the prize giveaway articles lol.

My favorite is the one where you showed the free ipod you got. It got me into free sites and it was also the first time I saw gear live
