As the year draws to a close, we would like to not only wish all of our Twitter friends and website supporters the best for Christmas and the New Year, we would like to also thank everyone unreservedly for their unwavering support and encouragement.
We really feel that the “Simon’s Car Spots” website has developed into even more of a community this year; bringing car enthusiasts together to have a bit of banter and most of all, fun.
With this in mind, we have a few changes planned that will allow us to extend the “car spotting” reach even further. We thought it was only right to share our news with you on our final blog of 2013 so that we can get your opinions and of course, your backing!
Changes to Come in 2014…
Oliver Hammond Steps Down from www.simonscarspots.com
Firstly, with a heavy heart, we are announcing that the Co-Founder of Simon’s Car Spots, Oliver Hammond, has stepped down in order to focus on his other existing activities and his family. Olly has been car spotting since he was a wee nipper and he certainly won’t be stopping. With this in mind, he will continue to contribute photos from time to time, perhaps in addition to the odd blog article.
“The timing felt right but I didn’t take this decision lightly”, explains Olly, “as SimonsCarSpots.com will always be my co-baby and I will always feel emotionally involved with the site. It’s been a great few years, starting the site with Simon and seeing it grow. I am sure Debbie (oops, I’ve let the cat out of the bag a paragraph early!) and Simon will increase the site’s popularity even further and I will certainly be keeping in touch. All the best, you two!”
You can continue to keep tabs on Olly via his personal Twitter account @renaultvelsatis. For the record, Olly, we have no intention of not keeping in touch!
Motor Mistress Steps Up to www.simonscarspots.com
I am delighted to announce that I will be taking on a more active role here at www.simonscarspots.com. If you like my blogs, news and other car-related ramblings then you will be finding it right here!
Both Simon & I have some exciting plans for the future and we will, of course, be looking to our friends to help us to raise the website to a whole new level. Simon’s Car Spots will always be Simon’s baby so there will be no re-branding – I will just be here to provide a bit of added interest (well hopefully, anyway!) and to help with the day-to-day running of the site.
Don’t worry though; www.simonscarspots.com wasn’t broken, so we have no intention of trying to fix it. We are just going to work super-duper hard to make it into the UK’s favourite car enthusiast website.
Come along and join us in 2014 – it’s sure to be one helluva ride.
Once again, have a fantastic Christmas and a spectacular New Year celebration – see you on the other side!
