The Most Read of 2020

Well, 2020 was an interesting year with so many changes to how we work, live, and socialize! Despite the tumultuous nature of the year, there was still cause to celebrate, and here at Gordon we celebrated the kind acts of our friends, colleagues, and partners with the creation of our Gordon Go-Getter page of the blog. It never ceased to amaze us how our community and industry came together.

Last year also had some new products introduced and new additions to the Gordon team. We are proud of everyone for making it through 2020! And thank you to all of blog readers for sticking with our puns and trips down memory lane. This top 3 list of the most read Product Talk posts is possible because of you. So without further ado, the three most read posts of 2020:

  1. Better Than a Lunchable and Bubblegum Rope! We introduced the new and improved Scotch Super 33+ Electrical Tape by 3M while learning about trends of the 90’s.
  2. If you haven’t been checked, then maybe it’s time!! We revisited a favorite from 2019 in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The pink 3M hardhats are a Gordon favorite!
  3. You’re not cool, unless you have a cooling towel! Back in July, all we could think about was beating the summer heat on the job, which made our discovering of the cooling towel by Klein Tools all the more exciting.

Happy New Year and here’s to 2021!

Not Another Top 10 List…The Best of 2019

Top 10 lists or countdown lists from 2019 are everywhere as 2020 comes around the corner. You might be sick of all of the countdown lists, so we thought we would, of course, add one more to your reading list! Luckily this is only a Top 4 list.

Over the years, Woody has shared some fun memories, thoughts, and information about the electrical industry. To celebrate another year of electrical humor and new products, we are taking a look at some of the best 2019 blog posts.

And without further ado:

  1. Gone FIshin’: Woody had a fun time with this fish tape solution from Milwaukee. We think he hid the fish tape tool and only shared the video with us!
  2. Is It Ever Gonna Warm Up?: A question that has been on my mind recently, but that is a Midwest winter for you. Woody sums up our need to stay warm with a Marley space heater and shares his new favorite television show in the process.
  3. Think Pink with 3M: Woody gets serious to explain the importance of our partnership with 3M for National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. We ended up donating proceeds from these sales to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, a great organization for information and support.
  4. Sliding through the raceway made easy!: The sad news is that this post is not about a water slide. The good news is that Polywater Lubricant J is an effective solution for pulling wire through conduit.

There you have it: the top 4 posts from 2019. You can read the full article by clicking on the link in each title. Thank you for enjoying and have a happy New Year!
