This is my 2,000th Blog Post


Above isn’t me right now, to be clear. Things kicked off at 5:30 am to keep this dream alive. But it will be me later.

Having a blog is the best. I’d have forgotten so much of the nonsense I get myself into if I hadn’t documented it here. In 2014 I didn’t miss a day eh, not one. It’s gonna be so great when I’m 80 and click through the archives, “oh ya that, and oh that time awwww.”

My blog has: put me in millions of dollars of new cars, tons of track time, endless products, sent me around North America, and got me the best job in the world – auto journalist.

If you’ve been thinking to start a blog, DO IT. It’s constantly surprising what it can produce for you.

For your blogging inspiration:

– creating a blog posts looks like
– and sometimes feels like this
– when stuck for ideas, just make an animated gif 
– this will become the scariest sight to see

– you’ll have to learn a little code, it’s okay it’s not hard
– luxury blogging looks like this
– maintain 2 folders on your hard drive
– my blog makes it through bank filters #proud
– this is polishing a blog

– tips for taking a good profile pic
– blogging is a _lot_ of time alone at your computer
– what crushing a blog post looks like
– making headers and sidebar art is genuinely fun

Finally, build the blog IRL before building it online.

Plus, blogging and jogging pants are practically synonymous, can’t go wrong with that pairing!

Here’s to a great long weekend, that it doesn’t rain on us, and that you laugh a lot.

Thanks for always checking in,

Had an Epiphany on Friday Night

Above is the moment it all fell into place.

There were sticky notes and Sharpies all over my kitchen, and if you were watching me I probably looked like a crazy person, muttering to herself, scribbling furiously, and hands over my head that moment when it all clicked into place.

Below is the actual epiphany, the one thing it all came down to.

I’ve had some good ideas over the years, but this one might be my most genius yet #NoDramatics

I know it makes no sense to you, but this is all I’m okay with saying for now.  You know how jinxy I am.

Stand by.



Been Spending 300% More Time Outside

Never in the city was I close to outside this much in a winter. Like a good chunk of Sunday afternoon was outside, which included a Nerf competition.

Even busted out my big boots.

Here’s the #BenefitOfBlogging – I can link back to when I  bought those boots in… 2007. Same for my winter coat in 2008.

I can link up how that coat makes me look like Black SpongeBob, and my solution for winter blues.

Or here’s a video video from March 2011:

Blog tag = winter

This is Luxury Blogging

I’m being chauffeured in the back of a 2015 Jaguar XJL AWD.

A 5.0L Supercharged V8 outputting 470 hp and 424 lb-ft.
0-100 km/h in 5.2 seconds
Starting at $105,990

Look how happy I am.

I love this doubling down:
getting work done, while getting where I need to go.

And getting there in complete luxury, like, this Jag is as good as it gets. There’s even a “Rear Executive Package” that makes the seats massage, and recline. Recline!

Eyes up front chauffeur, you don’t engage unless I do first #Chauffeur101

Now once more around the park and then home, James.
