Rock, Paper, Shotgun began in 2007 with a modest goal and in the ten years since has grown and grown, from that first post to a glistening archive of over 33,000, and from four founders working in their spare time to a hugely successful enterprise with seven full-time staff.

Magic.

PSA: Where To Find Rock, Paper, Shotgun Around The Web

Social media.
