Today is the final day of the Desk, 5 Days to More Engaging Content workshop. As someone who has struggled to use images without getting bogged down in my search of the perfect image, this workshop has certainly provided a lot of information that I will be using moving forward. Today’s challenge specifically was to use an animated gif or emoticon in our post. I figured this would be a great time to get a bit more specific about me and to add to my “about me” series which you can find on, you guessed it, my “About” page.
I am a big Porsche fan. Certainly all cars are of interest to me, and I have many favorites from many different manufacturers, but if you asked me today to pick one auto company I really loved most, it would be Porsche. I have many reasons, some make sense and some don’t make as much sense, but overall I believe the Porsche designs over the years have been generally outstanding and functional. And that is the key to me. I will always be a guy that wants both function and form, and to that end, in the high performance car market, Porsche is king.
This image is the Porsche 911 Targa 4:
Yeah, that is one peach of a sports car right there. I mean, the engineering that went in to making it look like a regular Porsche, and then hid the top so well is fantastic. But Porsche has always been making amazingly engineered cars. And being a software engineer, I guess I am drawn to that type of creation. Or maybe it is just the German in me.
Any way you look at it, I am an all around car fan, but given just one choice, I will stick with the Germans on this one.
