Snewzbutton.com was created in December of 2008 by John Rodriguez after he was sick of being told by his friends and family that he should start a website to share his tomfoolery with the world. Setting out to do something he was clearly incompetent in is one of the things Mr. Rodriguez does best, so he began work on what is apparently a blog.
In September of 2009, the article Failblog’s Occasional Misrepresentation of Failure was featured on comedy website collegehumor.com.

Hosting and other boring stuff
When I decided to make a web page, I knew I wanted to have ownership of the hosting, so I did a little research and opted to use hostgator. I liked it for the range of options that it offered me for the price. So far, they have been pretty awesome. When I was getting myself started, I had a couple of questions and they actually had a human being answer the phone.
If you want to get yourself started on making a web site, I recommend them.
Just like a bajillion other people, I went with wordpress to get my site organized. This didn’t dawn on me immediately, however. In the beginning, I spent quite a while trying to figure out how to make an architecture for a web site. After surrendering my manhood, I jumped on the bandwagon. The funny thing is that I’ve probably learned enough by screwing around with wordpress to take a stab at doing what I wanted to in the beginning, but I am sure glad I don’t have to.
