On January 17, 1996 a modest web site named all about beards made its debut on the web. Starting out on AOL web space — the now defunct “http://members.aol.com/beardguy” — the site moved to its permanent home at beards.org on January 20, 2005. Profound thanks go out to all of our friends and supporters over these years!
This morning, the beards.org Facebook page reached 100,000 likes! The recent growth we’ve experienced has been astounding. Thank you, everyone, for making this possible!
We hit 25 million on the gallery counter at 01:43 AM PST (Pacific Standard Time) on January 18, 2014! This counter began when the beards of the world gallery was first moved into the current gallery system on January 26, 2006. The real count is unknown but higher because of deletions and other roll-backs over the years. Still, it’s worth taking note each time we’ve displayed another million beard photos via the gallery.
We just celebrated eighteen years of all about beards the day before, on January 17, 2014. And just before 10:00 PM PST on January 16, 2014 we reached 60,000 likes on our Facebook page! Let’s keep growing!
Oh, and whose photo was the 25 millionth? It was Jess!
Today is all about beards‘ birthday, celebrating eighteen years of beards! All about beards remains the longest-running beard site on the web. Thanks for all your years of support.
On 2014/01/07 just before 1500 PST, the beards.org Facebook page hit 50,000 likes! Just one week earlier, we celebrated 40,000 likes. Welcome, everyone, and thank you! There’s just no stopping the beard momentum now!
The beards.org Facebook page is a companion to our main site. Our Facebook page hit 40,000 likes on the last day of 2013. Thanks, everyone! Please click on the image above to go to the beards.org Facebook page. Once there, be sure to “like” the page!
Have a happy 2014 with lots of great, happy beard growing!
Another No-Shave November has come to an end. But it’s really just the beginning. Any time is a great time to start growing your beard. If you didn’t start growing it in November, why not start growing it now?
Barry is dedicated to going all out with growing his beard this year. He was kind enough to do a beards.org photo shoot today. Here are some sample shots from today’s shoot. Stay tuned for more of Barry. Thanks, Barry!
The beards.org galleries hit twenty-four million views yesterday, September 30, 2013. I completely missed it, however, and did not notice it until hours later. Because I didn’t see which photo was the twenty-four millionth, I’ll mark the occasion with another photo of Vincent. Thanks for your interest in all about beards!
All about beards is very proud to announce our first Spanish-language video on YouTube! If you don’t know Spanish, it’s no problem. There are English captions available. Just click on “CC” on the YouTube player to enable them. Regardless of language, the video is a tribute to our good friend Vincent and his spectacular beard. Congratulations, Vincent!
