We launched WonderHowTo in January 2008. With professional backgrounds in television programming, software development, motion graphics, and textile design, our team loves contributing to, interacting with, and organizing the disparate voices who create downright wonderful tutorials and unselfishly share their idiosyncratic knowledge with...the rest of us.

Human curation remains central to our relentless focus on quality. In the past year, because we marvel at the mindbending innovation endemic to the How-To space, our front page has evolved from showcasing the best How-To of the day, to (now) systematically reporting the real time news events of all things DIY.

Today, WonderHowTo provides more than 170,000 how-to videos & articles from more than 17,000 specialized creators, spanning 35 vertical categories and 424 sub-categories. Our strategy for growth is to empower our intellectually-curious community.
