Refinery29: Why did you decide to found this site?
Hello Giggles: “We’re all avid Internet users, and we knew that there wasn’t a site that was exactly what we wanted to visit: A mix of sketch comedy and intelligent, interesting writing, and 100% security that we weren’t going to be assaulted by unpleasant imagery or attitudes.”
R29: What inspired you?
HG: “All the funny girls we know that have a tough break getting taken seriously on mainstream comedy sites, or always have to play 'Hot Chick #3' in videos, or write about something that doesn’t necessarily appeal to them in order for it to be successful on someone else’s platform. There are plenty of women and girls that feel that way, so why not give them a space to hang out and create and share? We really wanted to create the kind of site that we’d want to visit. We wanted to create something that had legitimately funny videos and great writing and tips and tricks on how to make life lovelier.”
R29: How did you meet and decide to work together?
“We all met through mutual friends and just like to make each other laugh. We know there are tons of ladies who are just like us, so it just made sense to create a site where we can all meet up and know we’re going to find content that appeals to us.”
