Mindstorm just posted on thumbtack.com. What is thumbtack.com? From what we can tell it’s similar to CraigsList however it is a services only directory.
From their site:
Why can you go online right now and buy any product you want but you can’t do the same for tutors, handymen, dog walkers, or other local services? Thumbtack is changing that.
Thumbtack isn’t like typical local search directories that simply return business listings with ratings and reviews, leaving you no better off than the paper Yellow Pages.
Instead, Thumbtack gives you the ability to vet, contact and book service professionals the moment you find them.
At Thumbtack, we understand that hiring service professionals requires a high degree of trust. This is why we go out of our way to make sure that our community is held to the highest standards and that you have all the tools you need to feel comfortable hiring someone online.
Thumbtack helps you get the job done at the time and place you want, with someone you know you can trust.
One thing we did like when researching thumbtack is that they preform background checks and have user reviews. However like with any other free service a user should proceed with caution and common sense.

We have actually had a lot of success (and a lot of junk) with CraigsList so hopefully we will also be successful with thumbtack. Only time will tell if anything is actually going to come of our free ad, if thumbtack does prove to be fruitful we’ll be sure to let you know.
