HuffPost Honors 10th Anniversary with Redesign

Happy birthday.

IMG_2109In honor of its 10th anniversary, The Huffington Post is getting a makeover. The big, often ridiculous, headlines will still be there, but the new site will likely be responsive and a lot less cluttered.

CNN Money reports that the revamp is getting a slow roll out. The changes are now implemented on HuffPost’s mobile site and soon will be seen on its international sites. As for huffingtonpost.com, the new version might not be launched until the end of the year.

In other birthday news, Arianna Huffington is lighting the Empire State Building tonight. There’s also a 10 year anniversary mini-site available.

In a blog post, Huffington explains how HuffPost got off to a rough start.

“We launched that day, a Monday, to decidedly mixed reviews; as I remember it, critics were lining up to predict it wouldn’t last. One hour after we launched, a reviewer compared HuffPost to a combination of Ishtar, Heaven’s Gate and Gigli. A year later she emailed me and asked if she could blog for the site, and of course I said yes.”

Of course.
