Ten years of Ultimate Handyman

Ten years ago in November 2004 I registered the domain name http://www.ultimatehandyman.co.uk at the time I was working shifts in a chemical plant and had plenty of spare time on my hands. As a bit of a hobby I set up the site and wrote a few articles and then implemented the PHPBB forum, the site grew from nothing into what it is today!

In 2007 I started ultimatehandyman.org which was set up with the sole intention of hosting video’s but due to the difficulties of running a video hosting server the videos were moved to YouTube starting in June 2009. Since then the Ultimate Handyman Video channel has had in excess of 30 million combined views https://www.youtube.com/user/ultimatehandyman

None of this would have been possible without the forum regulars who contribute to the forum by posting on a regular basis. Special thanks go out to the moderators who do an excellent job of moderating the forum. Thanks also to people that have produced content for the site in the way of articles/videos as this helps tremendously.

I’m working on the November competition at the moment, this will be a special ten year anniversary competition so be sure to keep an eye out for it :wink:

Thanks again to everyone that has contributed to the success of the site :salute:

Call me an addict. Don't know what I'd do without my daily 'fix' from UHM.

Chez, you're a 'dealer' :lol:
