Founded in 2005 by Pete Cashmore in Scotland, Mashable is possibly the granddaddy of lifestyle blogs, even though it has grown into a full-fledged media company. The website popularized the practice of creating short, easy-to-read posts.
The blog started out focusing mainly on the growth of social media platforms and how they shaped the way of life for people around the world. The scope widened over the years, with the content delving into the areas of media, tech, science, lifestyle, art, and more.
Mashable was sold to Ziff Davis, a digital media corporation, in 2019, but has maintained much of its original content style. With a reach of more than 45 million readers, it is run by a global team of editors, writers, and creators.
