How-To Geek is now 5 years old.

What started out as a fun side project has turned into a full-time job for myself and a number of writers. It's been an amazing ride, and we're going to continue to work hard to provide great how-to articles for every topic we can think of.

Few fun facts:

- We had 8,127 pageviews in our first month back in 2006.
- Last month: 10 million pageviews.
- 5,856 posts
- 88,805 comments
- 170,000 email newsletter subscribers
- 95,000 RSS subscribers
- 25,000 Twitter followers
- 22,000 Facebook fans

I've attached pictures of what HTG looked like through the years, just to prove that web design is not that important... the site was sooo ugly back then!

We're hiring a geeky how-to writer, somebody to focus on Windows 7, home networking, and similar topics. Pass it on.

The internet community will figure something else out. I'm pretty sick of Facebook.
