The evolution of bloggers as seen through the vLaunchpad over the years

I recently dug into some of my website design archives and came across many version of how the vLaunchpad has grown and evolved over the last 8 years. Because is contains links to all the blogs out there this time capsule serves to illustrate how bloggers have evolved and gorwn over the years. The earliest version of the vLaunchpad had very few blogs listed as ther ejust wasn’t many people bloggin back then. Over the years that has steadily grown as the current version of the vLaunchpad has over 400 active blogs listed on it.

My very first design developed in 2007 using Dreamweaver:

vlp-old3

 A newer layout with more content dubbed the vLaunchpad 2.0 in 2008:

vlp-oldest2

Next revision, started ranking blogs, still 2008:

vlp-oldest3

A new design layout in 2009, blog rankings expanded to the top 20:

vlp-oldest4

Finally switched to WordPress in 2010 which made updating easier instead of doing everything in html, initially I showed the top 25 blogs, then the top 50 blogs and now the top 100 blogs, here’s the latest design:

vlp-newest
