Website Update is Live

Last night I went ahead and changed the look and feel of the blog here. Although it looks kind of the same there is huge difference behind the scenes. Our website is now able to be read on a tablet or iPad for the first time without having to squint. While the main site is still not 100% where I want it to be the blog here is almost they way I like it. Sure I could have done a total redesign but like most people I hate change and I am sure our members don’t like change much either.

One thing the new update lets us do is have larger photos on the site. Let’s face it we are all getting older and our eyes are not what they use to be. What made me make the switch mostly was that WordPress the software we use stopped showing comments on the post. To me that is what makes the site work! I love getting comments on the site, wish we would get more actually.

Another thing I updated was the forms here. I can now set up a spot where our members can upload a picture of their car with details without me having to go in and do things like resizing the pictures or formatting the post. All these things are time consuming.

I can also offer the ability to post information about Cadillacs by the members. Sometimes in the comments I wish we had more information. Earle’s comment the other day about what to have in your car when you come across the country is exactly what I wish I could write! Now we can have members create a post. That ability will be coming shortly.

Fun Road Trip Map of the USA

I have been planning on taking a trip across the country. Eventually I think we will be driving back to New York from Phoenix once the house is lifted. I stumbled across this fun graphic I thought I would share. It explains the roads a little and what you should have in your car when driving a long trip. Is there anything missing? What else would you bring with you?

East Coast Car Association Toys For Tots Car Show

On Sunday I attended the East Coast Car Association car show for Toys for Tots in Forest Park Queens. There were a lot of Cadillacs and I will probably have to make a second post with all the pictures. One of the pictures of a black Cadillac with the white reflection I took has gone viral on social media and you will see why as it is pretty cool. I hope you share it also.

Club Updates

This past week has been the largest surge in members we have seen in a while. In case you didn’t know our email list is over 35,000 and we have members on every continent. I love watching the stats minutes after sending out a newsletter and seeing people all over the world opening it.

For the first time it looks like we are going to have official t-shirts for the club. I have been working with a company and have a sample shirt that is pretty cool looking. I have to take a picture of it and figure out how I will be taking orders. With so many people on the list I am sure there will be some hiccups.

Over On CaddyChat

I love talking about new Cadillacs and this week Cadillac announced they are changing the name on the SRX and small Suv’s they will be making to the name XT. This follows last weeks announcement that all Cadillacs will be called CT and a number at the end. This will start with the CT6 they will be debuting at the NY Auto Show. I will be broadcasting live from the show and will be on the Caddyinfo.com weekly chat live. Should be lost of fun. I have been on the last couple of weeks with Bruce and the guys. Come watch it here and let us know your thought s on the new XT call letters.
