The Coaster101 Turns 13 Birthday Giveaway
We’re celebrating our 13th birthday today! That’s right, we’re officially a teenager. And because Coaster101 wouldn’t be possible without our readers, we want to give back to you! Keep reading to learn how you can enter to win one of three Coaster101 Prize Packs!
But first, a little history about Coaster101:
I started the website on June 15, 2005 as a rising freshman in high school. I knew very little about blogging — and much less about web design and coding. But when I learned that I could create a website for free (thanks, Freewebs!), I jumped at the opportunity.
Coaster101 Over the Years
Both our content and design have changed over the 13 years we’ve been online. Many of those changes are thanks to the team of talented writers/coaster enthusiasts who have joined me to grow Coaster101 into what it is today.
Below are some of those changes (for the better, I think) over the last 13 years:
