1WD Is Turning 6 – Join Our Anniversary Giveaway!

Posted in Web Design • Posted on 77 Comments

1stwebdesigner is turning 6! And we couldn’t have done it without you. So, we are giving away 20 of our Flat Web Design Course with a total value of almost $2000 to our loyal readers! Over the years, our core focus has changed from simply publishing tips and tutorials to creating courses for freelance web designers and developers. Right now, we want to share them with you.

Do you want to help change the face of education?

Read our story and be inspired (and of course, get the chance to win 1 of the 20 prizes!).

A Brief History of 1WD

1stwebdesigner (1WD) was founded on August 30, 2008, by Dainis Graveris, then 19 years old and enrolled in design school. His love for design and learning led him to find a way to share the things he knew, and so he started 1stwebdesigner.com.

1WD started with mainly list articles featuring tools, tutorials, and themes gathered around the Internet. In just a couple of weeks since its inception, 1WD’s traffic grew from zero to almost a thousand visitors daily. As the traffic grew to the hundreds of thousands per month, Dainis opened 1WD to contributors.

To date, 1WD has had 190 contributors. Half of which were active contributors from 2009 to 2011.

These contributors made 1WD what it is today. They shared the same passion by which this blog was founded in and helped shape what 1stwebdesigner is now today, along with our loyal readers.

Since 2008, 1WD:

  • Received almost 150 million pageviews
  • Published 1722 articles and tutorials
  • Received over 33,000 comments
  • Worked with 190 contributors
  • Gathered over 200,000 social media followers

At the dawn of 2011, 1WD had over 20 active contributors from all around the planet. It was a bustling community, with several comments thrown at each article; discussion was always present.

The numbers look great, but over the years we’ve had our share of problems too.

  • Hundreds of hours of downtime because of bad hosting service.
  • We’ve been a target of comment spam attack and DDOS.
  • We lost traffic from almost 3 million monthly down to just 2 million.
  • 1WD was hacked and spam advertisements started to appear on the site.
  • And just recently, May 19, 2014, we lost 40% of our traffic because of the latest Google Panda update.

But we are striving to be better! And it would be lovely if YOU could tell US how 1stwebdesigner can improve. We value your input; we’d love to see them in the comments below!

Little Victories

Of course, we also need to talk about our little victories over the years.

2013 was the culmination of 1WD’s team’s passion. For the first time in years of collaborating online, the team finally met each other in person.

  • Began publishing video tutorials
  • Published a full-length web design course
  • Published three ebooks
  • Weekly free webinars
  • Established 1stwebdesigner headquarters in Iloilo City, Philippines
  • Expanded from 5 full-time employees to 20

    Wow! What an inspiring success story.
    I’ve been following 1WD since I started web design career. My first set of tutorials on CSS were from 1WD.
    What I love most about your tutorialsis the sstep-by-step easy-to-follow style in which they’re written.
    However, I notice you don’t have much tutorials on joomla. This is what I’ll love to see you do in the coming year.
    Happy anniversary

    No way! Just yesterday i was looking at this course wondering about purchase!

    I love You. Repeat: I love You! Tuts are brilliant. My understanding of PHP and WordPress skyrockets when i have chance to view the tutorial.

    I want to attack those sites that are not doing much for their owners by pushing the concept of “Website” as a functional business asset instead of a basic marketing expense. Video productof a service / knowledge base is agreat idea. Mail Chimp integration is excellent (cRM). Do you have any thing in logistics?

    l already own the class, so please give it to the person under this comment.

    I want to attack those sites that are not doing much for their owners by pushing the concept of “Website” as a functional business asset instead of a basic marketing expense. Video productof a service / knowledge base is agreat idea. Mail Chimp integration is excellent (cRM). Do you have any thing in logistics?

    l already own the class, so please give it to the person under this comment.

    Wow! What an inspiring success story.
    I’ve been following 1WD since I started web design career. My first set of tutorials on CSS were from 1WD.
    What I love most about your tutorialsis the sstep-by-step easy-to-follow style in which they’re written.
    However, I notice you don’t have much tutorials on joomla. This is what I’ll love to see you do in the coming year.
    Happy anniversary

    No way! Just yesterday i was looking at this course wondering about purchase!

    I love You. Repeat: I love You! Tuts are brilliant. My understanding of PHP and WordPress skyrockets when i have chance to view the tutorial.
