Calacanis test drives new auto blog

Weblogs Inc CEO Jason Calacanis has launched a promising new blog titled “Auto Blog” on the not surprising subject of automobiles. Never one for great fanfare Calacanis simply announced the new blog by email with the simple words: “We’re happy to announce the launch of our latest blog today: I think you can guess what it’s about”. Although his stable of blogs has not received as much publicity as that or rival Nick Denton of Gawker Media, and has been previously heading in the direction of quantity over top quality, he deserves credit where credit’s due on this one, with the blog being aesthetically pleasing, having dropped the dowdy look of many of the Weblogs inc blogs (but keeping the proforma navigation set) and seems full of interesting vehicle information. Looks like he’s on a winner.

    Beautiful. Only thing I noticed was that it may be a good idea to have a ‘what is rss?’ bit on the rss bar… or Maybe rss is more mainstream then I thought.
