I have been kicking around the idea for years

So I since I got involved with cars I have wanted to do something that allowed me to do what I love to do and possibly make a career out of it one day.........
I went to school originally to be a mechanic I graduated and than realized working on the average car is something I could not do. So now I am going to school and working two jobs both are sales jobs. I will be honest I hate them I like sales but I hate what I sell.


My dream is to do something with automotive media. There are quite a few blogs out there and online mags out there dedicated to this already but I want to do it just for fun so I am thinking about starting a blog.

In this blog I will have reviews on products, featured cars (not the cars in mags that 95% of the people who read them can not afford but cars like fubars or fukns), I hope to host events and maybe one day have a weekly video.

I am coming to you guys about this because vwforums was the first forum that I have felt welcome to I have been here for almost four years now and the same people are here and there are a ton of new faces as well. I want to start off small just by doing small reviews interviews for features and local even coverage and than maybe if I get some activity I will do more.

What do you guys think?

Do it! Could always use more blogs that feature the average joe's car, and not only the high priced ballers.
