2017 – A Year in Review

Well, another year has gone by and we have had some milestones happen. This has been a good year for us, so, in an effort to recap what has been happening, let’s look back at last years review. (Make sure to scroll down and check out all of the articles. Also, write a comment on your favorite article, or articles.)

As for this year, well, let’s just say it started a little slow. January through April, we had a total of 1,019 views to our site. Four months and we barely had any viewership, which made me wonder if this was at all worth it.

But, then May came and we had 1,300 views in just 1 month. My heart fluttered, there was hope after all. So far, for the rest of this year, that has been our lowest number, our highest was in June, when we had over 3,900 views and we have been keeping it pretty steady at around 3,000 on average each month since. Not bad for a one man and his son operation, huh?

OK, so, I am sure that you want to know what happened throughout the year, the good, the bad and the not so pretty. So, here goes, a month by month list, if you will.

January 2017

January started slow, but with a great first feature that I split into 2 parts. My first international feature, if you will. I was so hyped to do it, this is by far one of my favorites and we have maintained a friendship across the Atlantic, ever since. Meet One Man and His Mustang.

So, like I said, January was rather slow, but, in retrospect, I am glad it was. It afforded me the ability to really take a look at this site and see where it could go.

February – 2017

February didn’t pick up much on the posts. I re-blogged 2 posts and did 2 originals, but, they were good posts and began to set the stage for what was to come.

March – 2017

March generally starts the preparations for Car Show season, so, we wrote about that. I re-blogged a couple of posts, but, again, not a lot happening. However, we were introduced to Alan and his ’32 Ford “Graffiti” style coupe.

April – 2017

With the car show season slowly starting, I thought it would be a great time to check out what tools folks carried with them to the shows. I got this from another blogger, Tobias Mann, of Adventure Bent. He writes about overland adventure and asked the same question to his followers about what they would take on an adventure. I also re-blogged a couple of posts. Check out April’s articles

May – 2017

So May saw us break into the motorcycle arena for the first time. We enjoyed learning what a Bobber was and enjoyed meeting new people in different groups. We went to the O.C. Cruise-in and enjoyed the warmer weather. I re-blogged several posts but had an amazing month with the views from our articles. This is the beginning of when we really started picking up.

June 2017

June ushered in Denton, MD’s Cruise-in and introduced us to Jimmy Johnson and his 56 Chevy truck. This was one of our most popular posts and ushered in some other really nice features, both car and bike.

July 2017

July slowed down a bit with just 2 features and a re-blog. However, the views we got from the features really added to the size of the site. We brought back Jimmy and celebrated the 4th of July.

August 2017

August was our 1 year birthday! Yep, we turned 1 year old and celebrated with some very high views. We posted an article, with a video, sharing why we do this that offered some insight into what this is for.

September 2017

In September, I introduced you to my son’s blog, Brickiac, a Lego based blog. We did a couple of feature articles that were more a memorial than a car feature, but, really fit into our site.

October 2017

October started slow, but, we got several articles featuring Hearses. This was specific for Halloween, as we thought that everyone would appreciate them during the month of October more than any other time. We also did an article with a video for the Apple Scrapple festival in Bridgeville, DE.

November 2017

November, being a rather busy month, with Thanksgiving and all, was a smaller article month, but, ushered in our first article about a company. We added a couple of feature cars and chose to wait for December.

December 2017

December brought in the beginning of Breakthrough Ministries, a men’s group ministry. It also began to feature some amazing cars. We asked for folks who wanted to be featured and the response was overwhelming. (Look for some really good articles in 2018)

My name is Dennis. First, let me just say, I am a Christian, a husband, a father to 1 beautiful step-daughter and 3 strapping young boys and a step-grandfather (She calls me “Grumpy”) to a gorgeous step-granddaughter. These will always be my priorities, no matter what my interests are. That said, I strive to keep and maintain a family friendly atmosphere, so my boys and their friends can enjoy the site as much as I do. (Granddaughter isn’t old enough and daughter has other interests.)
