Cheezburger Blog

Blog example number one, pictured above, is Cheezburger dot com. It’s essentially a meme blog. Two Hawaiian dudes launched it back in 2007. They uploaded a funny cat pic with an even funnier caption, “I can has cheezburger?” and the thing went nuclear. It was getting over a million hits a day. They sold it nine months later, pocketing two million! It was sold again in 2016 for an undisclosed amount. It still gets about two million unique visitors a month. This blog looks like they took every potentially viral thing from the internet, shook the sh*t out of it in a Yahtzee cup, dumped it out, then had a dog drag its butt across it. And it still made (and continues to make) millions.
