About Me: How And Why I Write
This article isn’t the usual professional looking article I usually write. Far from it. This article is more personal. This article is about me. So with that said…
Dear Hubpages & Readers
I’m thankful for the existence of a platform that allows me to get my ideas out. I’m a guy that you could say has a lot of friends and yet no friends at all. I don’t have friends to really talk about my love for cars, music, wrestling, writing or anime with. I have friends but none that share my interests. So I am glad that on here I am accepted for who I am. That I get to write for all the readers that read my articles. It is a privilege. One I do not take for granted. Writing on here has made me a better writer and has made me come into my own. I’ve come to realize that I possess my own style of writing. A style that clashes a lot with Hubpages editors & editing algorithms. I also feel like I need to make a more conscious effort to connect with my readers. So I will be writing more articles in the coming weeks & months & revising a specific article, “Overpriced: The GM C-1”, when I get more information on the subject as I only want to relay accurate information or opinions based in reality. And an article like that needs more concrete facts than what it has. In writing articles this way, I run columns. You may have noticed that my articles are headlined by the terms “Inertia Report”, “Oversteer”, or “WTCCSHD” (What the Car Company Should Have Done). These are to separate the types of articles I write. The Inertia Report is where I give my opinion on topics in the automotive world. Controversial topics, as well as topics nobody has even thought of, are all topics I discuss under that article column. Oversteer is where I give a critique on a car or car company. So far, my heat has been aimed at Infiniti, and trust me, there is more heat to come. But things I feel need a critique in the automotive world fall under this column. Finally, What the Car Company Should Have Done or WTCCSHD for short is the last column.
Now I’d like to explain in detail what a WTCCSHD is. I know some people have probably been like, “Yea Joshua, explain? Why this long ass acronym?” Well, simply put, WTCCSHD or “What The Car Company Should Have Done”, are articles where I take a car, a set of cars, or a whole company, and present a hypothetical situation of how I would market or conceive a particular event in Automotive history. An example of this would be...
"WTCCSHD: How I would launch 2016 Infiniti Eau Rouge and give Infiniti a legit performance division." Not only in that article am I launching a car but I’m also giving a detailed description of how it changes brand perception and the company as a whole with facts & an insightful opinion.
If the name isn’t obvious, I rewrite history & explain what the car company should have done, either to one model or the whole brands model lineup. This is because I feel a company could or should have done something better than they did in real life. There is a slight variation of this column though, What the Car Company Should Do or WTCCSD for short, were I look at the actions a car company should take in a future tense scenario. Essentially, a well explained what-if. Then I write other articles about car stuff in general.
In the end, I want to continue to create and write entertaining and informative articles for the readers. I took a hiatus on writing for health & then for personal reasons. But I can now clearly state that I am back and ready to write. I also have an announcement to make. YouTube videos explaining my articles coming soon, sometime this year. I won’t give exact times. That said, I hope that you guys have a peaceful and blessed day. And thank you for the opportunity to write about what I love for an audience that appreciates it.
