Re: How Did You Find This Site? Welcome!


Well, way back in '07, I was looking for workers for a 40,000 sq.ft. steel frame project I was supervisor on...I should look, it was my first post I believe.

Anyways, while googling away I made it here

I found it to be highly addictive.

Seriously though. I was looking for a news story about a guy I knew that had been injured in a nail gun accident. He was shot in the top of the head with a 3 1/4" framing nail.

In the initial news story, he had no signs of permanent damage. I was just trying to follow up on it. I found CT instead.

I was trying to steal some ideas from other people of how to set up a tool trailer. I googled some images and most of the best ones were from CT. The rest is history.

BTW it was one of the best googles I ever did.

I found Contractor talk when I was building my website back in 2007. I was Googling "Contractor websites" and the rest is history.

I was searching for something on Google, don't really remember what it was, but this site showed up. Clicked on it and was shocked it was the first time I ever saw it. Great site!

I also did a google search for contractor forums after some frustrations with an overly anal client.

This is indeed a good thread Paul.

Stickied for now! (Edit-somebody already stickied it)

Someone mentioned it over on the JLC forum. I think it might have been Joe Carola. I'd never heard of it but figgered I should check it out. I think I was sober, too.
