One of the most popular categories for online articles is automotive. This shouldn’t surprise anyone because there are indeed more cars than people in the United States. We are a nation of automobiles. Our cars are part of our daily lives, and therefore folks just can’t get enough of this type of content on the Internet. Now then, if you are an online article author who’d like to participate in this category, then there are a few things that you need to know.
Now then, after writing hundreds and hundreds of articles on automotive topics I’ve learned a thing or two. Yes, I’ve made some mistakes, but I’ve also received kudos from readers who have contacted me to learn even more. There seems to be a thirst for knowledge of the industry, the new car models, and nostalgic pieces about automobiles. Okay so, let’s say you want to focus on the auto industry.
That’s a good choice because it has to do with business, as well as jobs and employment, and it is pertinent to our economic vitality. But before you go and write about the auto industry, there are some books that you should read, and I would suggest that you start with Lee Iacocca’s book about how he saved Chrysler, along with a couple of books on General Motors’ history. It might also be wise to go onto Wikipedia and learn all about Henry Ford, and his thoughts on the assembly line. You should also know who Charles Deming was, and the history of the Japanese automakers, just as you should understand the political and economic history of Detroit.
Indeed, you should probably learn about some of the new alternative energy propulsion systems and electric cars, electric hybrids, and perhaps the future of fuel cells. You see, without this basis of understanding, all you will be talking about are regurgitated facts and figures. You won’t be able to capture the essence of what the industry is all about, or very well understand where it’s driving to today.
You see, not only have I written a good number of articles on the auto industry, I’ve also read quite a few as well. After reading some of them, I felt as if I was wasting my time. I certainly hope you will write informative articles, do your homework, and give the readers like me, a real treat, and perhaps you can education some on past, present, and future of the auto industry.
