I'm not spending a penny to advertise this blog but a growing number of consumers keep stumbling into my commentary thanks to how it's been indexed on Google. Because I started writing this blog back in 2003, back in the early days of hybrid car adoption, my content has been rewarded on search engines. The fact that so many other bloggers or media writers have linked to this blog as a general resource on hybrid cars has helped in search results, and create a venue for interesting feedback. This past week, I received a number of excellent comments, including one from a guy (who I don't know) that seems to have me (and my mission on this blog) entirely figured out. He's pretty close to the mark. Here's an excerpt:
As I read this blog (over a several day period) I noticed something - Pete loves his car. Sure, he was disappointed with the actual mileage he encountered over the lofty promises on the window sticker. Like a lot of people, he blamed the dealer, the manufacturer, the EPA. But never once did I read that he encouraged someone NOT to buy the car. Quite the contrary, he has done everything possible to salvage the relationships, beliefs and technologies involved with hybrid vehicles.
