Why do I use Drupal?
I had recently left a job answering tech support calls for commercial tanning beds. I took a job working for a well funded startup that wanted to create a website for people who had fun on lakes, boating, skiing, etc. Long story short, I discovered Drupal and its AMAZING flexibility and features. You don't need to know programming to let Drupal make you look good, but since I do program in PHP I really took to Drupal and have made it a lifestyle and a career!
