The latest: All our time can’t be given back.
Rather than dwell on all the reasons this post is weeks overdue, let’s get right to it. In addition to my regular contributions to my usual sites, I have a few exciting new publications to add to the list. First off is the Chicago Tribune. I took a look at sunroof safety (which also appeared in the print edition on Sunday, February 25) and I interviewed Chicago Auto Show patrons about ride-share vehicle preferences.
At October, I got my first taste of beer writing with a story about the first craft breweries in the country to go 100% solar. It took months to make this piece happen, and I’m really proud of it.
For HowStuffWorks, I wrote about controversial geoengineering techniques, took a look at sound bathing as a means of relaxation, talked to the team behind Nissan’s 370Zki concept debut at the Chicago Auto Show, explained Porsche’s decision to turn to 3-D printing to supply classic parts, and nabbed a co-byline with the site’s founder by updating How Manual Transmissions Work.
At U.S. News & World Report, I covered the new options in vehicle subscription services and put together comparisons of the Honda CR-V and Acura RDX, BMW 5 Series and 3 Series, and Kia Sorento and Ford Edge. I also contributed to the site’s annual Best Cars for the Money Awards with overviews on the best values in 3-row SUVs and luxury midsize cars.
That’s about it for now. I have another Chicago Tribune story on the schedule, along with plenty more. I might try to do these updates on Monday mornings from here on out; clearly, Friday afternoons are simply not happening.
