NEW YORK, February 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

Hometalk, the world's largest DIY community, today announced the 100,000th user-generated tutorial has been added to its rapidly growing, author-supported collection of DIY home and garden projects.

Each tutorial acts as a living project on the site, with activity and conversation between users and the author surrounding the posted projects. This engagement has also increased rapidly, along with the site's steadily growing user-base.

"Our goal is to continuously add value to members of the home & garden DIY community. We absolutely could not do that without the support of our incredible, altruistic Hometalkers," said Miriam Illions, Co-founder and CMO of Hometalk. "We are astounded by how much our members give to each other. Not only do we receive hundreds of tutorials for new home and garden projects every week, but our members are constantly engaging with one another to help each other complete their own projects."

Hometalk's 1.9 million registered members and 6 million visitors each month have the ability to post their own DIY projects to the Hometalk site with images and instructions on how to complete projects to enhance home and garden spaces. Hometalkers ask each other questions about these projects, as well as other general DIY questions. On average, users receive responses from the community within minutes regarding their DIY queries.

"The level of engagement between users on our site surrounding valuable content elevates Hometalk from any social network, to a social network with a purpose," said Illions. "The content posted and conversations around this content bring real, tangible assistance to people working to enrich their homes through DIY projects."
