A Brief Blog Profile: Cars for Girls
by Thomas Hynes
To some, Cars for Girls may sound like a contradiction of terms. With the possible exception of Marisa Tomei's character in My Cousin Vinny, cars are usually the purview of the less fair gender. Or anyway, that's what people think. But, that's nonsense. Everybody drives. Most people need cars to get them where they need to go. Gender doesn't matter. Still, most of the car blogs out there cater to dudes. But, as this site proves, not all of them do.
The blog was designed to "empower women by respecting and educating them in order to help them make smarter buying decisions." For example, here they've outlined the most reliable family cars on the market. This post highlights the 27 new cars that get 40 miles to the gallon or better. This post warns against the damage summer heat can inflict on car batteries. There's even this post that breaks down the inequities of insurance pricing from state to state.
What's funny about Cars for Girls is that even with it's no nonsense approachto the subject matter, the headlines are still written in the color pink. It's as if the blog is attempting to coerce potential readers to the site. 'Just get in the car,' the blogs seems to say. 'You'll certainly like where this is going.'
