Some news about this wildly unpopular site

This blog has a habit of laying dormant for long periods of time. Most of the time, it is my own fault, of course, as I don’t particularly consider this a priority. But in recent months, it has gone quiet because I have concentrated my writing efforts elsewhere.

Over the past year, I have contributed the odd post to Chris Pollitt’s award-winning site, Not £2 Grand, which I have linked to here on occasion. It has been enjoyable to do so – Not £2 Grand fits well with my interests and the reality of my own automotive world. After a bit of discussion with Chris, and a brief meeting in a corner of a gritty West Yorkshire industrial estate, across the bonnet of a crusty W124, some plans were hatched for me to write there more regularly. I even have my own login now.

Not £2 Grand is all about budget motoring: exploring the huge variety of cars you can own for under £2000, features on technical stuff about working on and improving those cars, and stories of cheap car adventures. I really like what Chris is doing with it, and I’m happy to be able to help him out a little bit more over there as he works on growing the site.

As a result, this blog won’t be seeing much activity anymore. But that’s okay, because with the exception of a bizarrely popular post on changing the thermostat on a VAG 1.8T engine, Not £2 Grand is far more exciting than anything I have ever managed to drum up here.

Be sure to visit the site, and follow on Twitter, Instagram, and the Facebook. And if all you want to do is read the stuff I write, you can do so here.
