all about beards made its first appearance on the web on the 17th of January of 1996. The site’s original objective was to promote beards in a positive manner. Thirteen years later, all about beards is the longest-running beard site on the web and the site remains dedicated to its original mission. We have come a long way, but there’s much more in store. With an eye on a bright future, our thirteenth anniversary year promises to be the best yet!
At 8:42 PM PST, the counter in the galleries hit the seven million mark! We hit six million back on October 22, 2008. I would have liked to hit seven million by the end of 2008. But I’m happy to start off this early in 2009 with such a great milestone. Keep viewing those great beards in the galleries!
So which photo was the lucky number seven million? Well, this time I was at the keyboard and was able to see which one it was. It was this photo of Andrew:
