Local BuzzFeed quizmaker quits amid layoffs

ALLENDALE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — If you've ever wondered who's behind all those wild, personal and sometimes wacky quizzes on BuzzFeed, chances are it was Rachel McMahon.

Now a sophomore at Grand Valley State University, she started making the quizzes when she was in high school in Hudsonville. 

“it was in my high school yearbook class just doing it for fun because there was a computer in front of me. I didn't think it would take off,” McMahon remembers.

Over the past two years, she has created 700 online quizzes for BuzzFeed without getting paid, all for fun. Some of them racked up more than 800,000 page views and generated big revenue for BuzzFeed.
