Welcome to the Auto Initiative!

Hello! Somehow you made it here, on purpose or by accident (most likely accident) and if you’re interested in the automotive world then that’s a good thing! The “About” section of the page is kind of dry right now, so I’m throwing this article together to go a little more in depth about what this blog presents.

Some Background

Since I was around six, I’ve held a great interest around cars and later other subjects within the automotive world. Freestyle writing is also something I enjoy, so this is a blog that I’m starting to educate others on the automobiles around us, and to inform others on certain opinions that I hold. All viewers should be aware that this is my first blog, so the articles I produce may start short and gradually get longer the more I write on here. It’s also important to know that the writing will not be perfect all the time.

On the Blog

The Auto Initiative is less focused on new or classic vehicles and more on other topics from the history of a certain model or make, to general articles about smaller and larger benchmarks in the automotive world. You should also know that the aim of the blog is not about competing with other small auto blogs, and you will never be charged for any of the content that I produce. That’s right, no messy subscriptions or paid VIP content. I am, however, considering making a free newsletter in the distant future that grants an exclusive article. A donations tab may be added as well.

I’ve tried to make the homepage user friendly and the “Articles” page will have some simple sorting features to make it easy to find certain articles. There’s also the “Car of the Month” page, where I feature an article every month about a specific year and model of a car that I feel is deserving of the title. Starting in July 2021, all Cars of the Month will be compared for the ultimate “Car of the Year” title.

If you are somehow reading this in the first week of the blog, there are going to be four car based articles and July’s Car of the Month waiting for you. I plan to release at least one article or substantial change a week, but be prepared for more in an inconsistent manner. Expect the layout of the main blog pages to change around in the early days of their release, as I attempt to make them more convenient.

On the Comments Section

Any short, constructive criticism on the writing would be appreciated, as well as any other opinions on the cars being discussed in the article. Feel free to debate with each other as well, but try to keep the debate on `peaceful grounds (minimum to no swearing, no insults that aren’t towards the cars, etc.). Spam is not welcome in any form and will be removed upon sighting. Thank you all for taking a few quick minutes to read over this section, and stay safe on the road.

One More Thing

No matter what I say about the cars in my articles, I appreciate all car manufacturers for creating the amazing automotive world.
