10 underground auto blogs you should read

I know that not everyone is gaga over social media, but I’m one of those people who gets excited to meet new folks no matter what the setting. I’ve been on Twitter since 2008, and I can honestly say that the relationships I’ve built online have helped propel the success of this blog.While I do tend to share others’ articles on Twitter, that doesn’t exactly help out the folks who aren’t sharing their thoughts and promoting their work in 140 characters or less. So I thought I would put together this list of “boutique” auto blogs that are written by people I’m friends with online (some day we’ll meet in person!). Oh yeah, and I should mention that I enjoy reading their stuff!10 Underground Auto Blogs You Should Read:

    Thank you for the mention, Melanie! I, or rather we, strive to be a bit different, taking a slightly different perspective than other automotive sites. We combine straight journalism with commentaries, product overviews and some fun stuff. Hopefully, we’re balanced and most certainly we enjoy our readership including you.

    So I’m “boutique”? Hmmm… Does this mean I get to charge more if I ever create Auto Marketing Blog t-shirts? Seriously, thanks for the mention and right back at you. I always enjoy reading your perspectives here and someday look forward to meeting in person. In the meantime, I’m just going to write the opposite of whatever Matt Kergan writes.

    Matt – You’re welcome. I appreciate you continually sharing your thoughts and perspectives both through your writing and through the comments on this blog. Cheers!

    You’re SO boutique you don’t even know it, Chris! Yes, you can make those fancy hipster t-shirts that have the “faded look” to them. Thanks for your ongoing support and friendship. Although you left the auto world from 9-5 (and you seem to be eating a LOT of tacos lately), I always find your point-of-view insightful and pithy…just like your final sentence. 🙂
