As a blogger myself I read a lot blogs.  They help form opinions and research topics.  Many people mistake blogs as authoritative content.  When someone is an authority in a specific niche and they blog about topics they are familiar with they are using their knowledge to influence their readers to come around to their way of thinking or to establish their competency on the subject matter, if the blog is of a "commercial" nature. Not everyone will agree and thats is why blogs have comments so people can give other points of view and build the conversation between the blogger and their readers.  Personally I only try to sell ideas from my blogs not services, that may change soon, and provide a call to action of sorts; however the dialog is slow to start online many times.  Why is this? Could it be because people in our niche are unwilling to share ideas and expertise or are they just so busy in what they are doing the conversation does not matter to them?  Are car guys still playing their cards so close to their chest and afraid that if they give away what works for them that their competition will use this information against them?  Those questions are from my opinion and not fact.  Of course style matters a lot and post that are published need to be to be geared to start the conversation and many times they are not in this niche. Hopefully with my contributions to the community here will change those lines of thinking and we can start engaging each other more to provide our experiences, knowledge and opinions to build the best automotive social network ever. Please give your insights to help start building the conversation.
