    Hey Guys,

    Just curious to know some of your origin stories in regards to making your first friends/business partners/networks within BHW. Such as how long were you a member for, what started the friendship, how it evolved outside of the BHW forums. I am really interested to know.

    Thanks in advance!

    My first friends were the people who posted the threads that motivated me to teach myself everything I know today. Most of them aren't active any more though so all I can do is adapt their methods and keep them flowing throughout the internet.

    Damn I always thought you've been around for much longer... Could have sworn there was someone with your nickname or very similar that has been registered for a long time.

    I've been here for so long and yet I haven't really met anyone on BHW yet that I have frequent recurring chats with. My first 2 years on this forum were a waste because I was so focused on learning BH SEO techniques through threads that I never made friends in any industry, even the seo one. Now I'm in a business where I need them but all I have is credibility in earnings.

    Maybe some day :p There's gotta be somebody out there for me.

    Dizz, BassTrackerBoats and meathead1234.
    also all the IRC regulars :You_Rock_


    Edit:

    There are just too many great people in this forum.
    Way too many to list them all. Everyone who shares, contributes and make this community great. You are all awesome!

    Bestbuyfoam, greywolf, and dumper were my first friends on here, but I can't count how many I have met since then who are equally important. Oldsalt is the best friend I have on here, and there are many who come in a close second, such as basstrackerboats, reinie, tsmash, backontrack, xenix9, _sunny_, Leith, silenthunter, well....... Just way too many to name. BHW is full of good and kind hearted people :)
