Time. It Just Takes Time

I came back to my blog last week with the intention of writing daily, and posting three or four times per week. Well...I guess I didn't solidify my goals very well. I realize now just how easy it is to let the housework, the kids, the dog, and the research take over. I allowed all those other things to take over for a year. I thought I'd conquered my issues with completing tasks and posts, but my 11 draft posts tell a different story.

Automotive Recall Round-up

There have been a few automotive-related recalls in 2014. And by a few, I mean 4,843,405 vehicles, and 4,176,601 car or booster seats. Those numbers are crazy; they're too big. And now my head hurts.

I Was Lost

It's time to get back to work. Ok, I admit that I "work" a bit everyday as a mother, homeowner, volunteer, and freelancer, but now I mean that it's time I got back into the groove of driving cars and writing about them. I took a year off from blogging because I got discouraged and was lost. Ironic that a person who loves to drive got lost.

Social Media Survival for Car Dealerships

Engaging consumers through social media is important for both car companies and local dealerships.

What is social media?
Social media is digital networking. It’s done online, either on computers, phones or tablets. It’s quick, it’s short, and it’s targeted. Twitter, Facebook, Four Square, Pinterest, Google+, Yelp are the first that come to mind. Using social networking allows you to interact with customers before they come in to your dealership.

Why is social media important?
Most buyers (90%) use social sites and search engines to research car buying decisions. They also use social sites to complain about issues; and to let others know what they like and don't like.

Tips for Your Next Walt Disney World Vacation

(c)Car Mama
In my opinion, February was too warm in California. I'm not in the mood to ski, or make hot chocolate, or bake cookies. I'm in the mood for shorts and enjoying umbrella drinks by the pool. Our pool at home is about 37 degrees Fahrenheit so I'll skip that one and wait until April to dip my toes in the pools at Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida.
