There was some networking here. After the story was published, Skipper Hull and I spoke again about him doing some car stories for Blast. We just started an automotive section.
I think a lot of this whole scenario reflects how much of myself I try to put into Blast. My worst habit is that I tend to get into trends and start blogs about them. I bought my first “mine” car in June — previous ones (92 T-Bird, 96 Taurus, 01 Corolla, 00 Ranger) were my parents’ previous vehicles. (I crashed the T-bird, R.I.P.) As a result, I’ve gotten really into cars lately, buying things for my 08 Corolla and doing features about the results.
Though this time we have some help. We’ll work with Hull on some how-to’s and articles about classic cars his garage restores. Separately, we’re bringing in a female car blogger and car reviewer that we’re going to call “The Diva of Driving.”
