jacobgrahn.com was the first website used by Jacob Grahn from January 2005 until April 2006 when it was succeeded by jiggmin.com.

History

Jacobgrahn.com launched in January 2005 as a portfolio for employers to showcase Jiggmin's recent web and graphic designs created in Flash. Video games were first added in April and would eventually receive their own section a few months afterwards.

As the year progressed, Jiggmin began devoting more time to programming games and less to graphic design, with the section not receiving further updates past October. A "current project" area on the main page was added around that time showcasing an in-progress game, though it was only used twice due to him moving to mrjiggmin.com the following April.

Despite the switch, jacobgrahn.com was not updated until June 2007 when the About Me page was overwritten with a message explaining Jiggmin's loss of interest in web design and a link to his new gaming website. It continued to remain up as an archive until late 2011 when it was shut down. Jiggmin continued to renew the domain, however, until 2015 when it was closed entirely.[1][2]
