It was on this day 5 years ago that Texas Blues Alley officially opened. But wait... didn't TXBA turn 10 years old in 2017? Well, sort of.
Our 10 year anniversary celebration was the 10 year mark of the first video I ever uploaded, back in 2007. But before Texas Blues Alley, there was StevieSnacks. And a lot of what you see here on TXBA was originally produced during the 6 years that StevieSnacks was growing.
Today's anniversary is significant because it represents a huge risk that paid off. StevieSnacks was at its peak in 2013, and then I decided to reboot it with a new name and image. The branding work took place over the final months of 2013, and the actual work of building the site and launching it took place during the first four months of 2014.
Then on April 25th 2015, StevieSnacks shut down and Texas Blues Alley was born. I put together this video to celebrate the occasion.
