CAN I WRITE AN ARTICLE OR EDITORIAL FOR THE SITE?
No, sorry. Ate Up With Motor exists in large part as a showcase for the owner’s automotive writing. Although we’ll happily take suggestions for future articles (and/or corrections to existing ones), and we might occasionally quote someone else’s work, we don’t accept outside articles, editorials, or other written content. (In particular, please note that it’s our firm policy not to run any type of “advertorial” content, such as sponsored posts.)
CAN I CONTRIBUTE PHOTOS OR OTHER IMAGES TO THE SITE?
If you have photos or images that you would like to offer for use in our articles, please send us an inquiry using the Contact Form or via email.
We cannot offer any compensation (monetary or other valuable consideration) for the use of your images, but any photo or image of yours that we use on the site will appropriately credit you, either under your real name or a pseudonym, as you prefer.
Please refer to the Photos Needed page for more information on submitting photos or other images for use on Ate Up With Motor.
CAN I SUBSCRIBE TO ATE UP WITH MOTOR?
You can “subscribe” to Ate Up With Motor via web feed, using your choice of web feed apps (and/or web browsers that have their own feed management tools). However, to be clear, access to the site is free — we do not charge and do not plan to charge a fee to access content on the Ate Up With Motor website. There are no paid subscriptions.
Absolutely (although you’re under no obligation to do so). The work involved in creating these articles is substantial — typically well over 25 hours each — and while this is a business endeavor (we garner modest revenues from advertising and voluntary contributions from site visitors), it is so far not a particularly lucrative one in any direct sense.
If you would like to make a monetary contribution, you can use the button in the “Support Ate Up With Motor” button in the right sidebar.
Money we make from visitor contributions (and advertising) goes to both the site’s operating costs and our living/personal expenses. (The site owner is self-employed and the site is one of the ways he pays the rent and eats!) Please note that Ate Up With Motor is **NOT** a nonprofit organization, and donations, contributions, or other payments or gifts to Ate Up With Motor are **NOT** tax deductible.
While contributions are appreciated, they are NOT required. We don’t charge any fee to access the content on the Ate Up With Motor website!
Please also note:
- By making a contribution or other payment to Ate Up With Motor, you signify your agreement to our Financial Transactions Policy — please read it!
- To make this absolutely clear, contributions are **NOT** tax deductible.
Additionally, state law requires us to disclose the legal name under which our business is conducted and the complete street address from which the business is actually conducted, which are:
