A quick history

On Valentine’s Day, February 14 2010, the video-sharing website, YouTube, was founded. The first video showed co-founder Jawed Karim at the San Diego Zoo, and was uploaded in April 2005. It can still be viewed on the site (all 18 seconds of it!)

Today, over ten years later, YouTube has over a billion users, almost one-third of all users of the Internet. Every day, people generate billions of views and spend millions of hours watching videos. read more

C is for Creative Content – Build a Blog

This entry is part 5 of the series Build a Better Blog

Today we reach C as we seek to Build a Bettter Blog.

    Why do people come to my site? What will interest them?
