theCHIVE turned 10 years old last month. We decided to forgo the pomp and circumstance of throwing big party until next spring – we’ve simply got too much going on these days. These are exciting times here, with theCHIVE, CHIVE TV and Atmosphere firing on all cylinders.
Still, having made it 10 years on the internet is an accomplishment, so I’m marking the occasion with a 3-part series looking back at moments Chivers never knew about – forks in the road that would forever define theCHIVE. In many ways we were, and still are, kids from Indiana who decided being rich in friends was more important than actually being rich. Leo and I don’t have as much money as people think..but we certainly could have.
In 2014 Playboy tried to buy theCHIVE.
