A fresh design every 30 seconds…

June 18, 2008

A new image is created and uploaded to 99designs.com every 30 seconds of every minute, of every hour, of every day, and it’s been running at that rate for at least the last month. That’s an amazing amount of creative juice!

The other amazing stat is that 99designs.com generated over 6 million pageviews in the last 30 days. That’s not our log files talking, that’s google analytics. It’s at this point I’m thanking our developers for taking the extra time to build the foundations of this sucker properly on a scalable infrastructure.

    That is just awesome. Every since I found sitepoint.com, I have fallen in love with the site. Articles and most importantly Contests.

    I’m just curious as to why you guys decided to have your blog hosted on wordpress.com instead of downloading WordPress. It seems to me that if you would’ve done it on 99designs, you probably would’ve had alot more freedom to view your website stats and to do whatever.

    Valor: Two reasons. So that if our main server infrastructure is unavailble, we can still let you guys know what’s going on. And so that we can put more of our time into improving 99designs, rather than hosting, maintaining and upgrading our blog.

    Great to hear you love the site :)
