We posted the GIF below on Reddit yesterday and it blew up. Here I have to post it as a video because SquareSpace doesn't accept images bigger than 20 megs, but originally its a GIF.
By blew up I mean it took off. Our stats skyrocketed. Just by posting a simple GIF with a catchy title on a popular website where people share stuff.
This isn't the first time that this happens. Every now and then Mandalagaba finds itself on Reddit and we try to make the most out of the attention. The user feedback is invaluable, we learn a few lessons about server load balancing and new users try their hands and bring new styles we've never seen before.
We noticed that GIFs worked really well for the type of content we publish. They are very popular on most sharing-driven environments. Have a cool simple video that you don't even need to play and you got yourself one nifty dopamine generating machine.
