Three years doesn’t sound like a lot of time. Maybe if you look at it as 1095 days, 26,280 hours, 1,576,800 minutes, or 94,608,000 seconds, it starts to sound like more. But if you asked me how much time has passed since CFlo and I started blogging about used cars on the interweb…I would say it seems like just a few days. In those few days we (I’m including a big group of additional contributors here) have published 4,000 features, received 6,000 tips, read 25,000 comments, and gotten 6,000,000 pageviews.
Job done, eh? Nope. Not by a long shot. In fact, today we are going to take a break from the daily onslaught of well priced custom El Caminos (and custom AMC Batmobiles) and introduce a few new things that will help grow the site for the future.
A quick rundown of what’s on deck today.
7AM PST: DT Radio Show Podcast. Yeah, that’s right ya hipster, you don’t have to put your monocle on to read the website anymore. You can just listen to it on your iPhone, android, PC, or phonograph. Link and more later.
9AM PST: Announcement on a fundraising campaign we are launching to try to grow the site. The hat gets passed around, cash flows like crude under a vintage Volkswagen, and everybody wins!! YAY!
10AM PST: We are making some changes on our social media front, and you will be happy to know that our twitter bot is being replaced by a real live human bot!
12Noon PST: DT needs you; a call for new contributors.
2PM PST: Fun stuff, a list of DT rides, current, past, and future.
