Some of you may have noticed that many recent Autoblog posts have appeared with a shout out to someone named Joel thanking him for a tip. That man is Joel Arellano and for the past few months he has been supplying us with tips at the rate of 10-20 per day. Realizing the amount of time he must be spending on the internet looking for automotive news, we decided to give Joel a call and see if he was interested in getting paid for it. We've very pleased to welcome Joel as one of our new bloggers, and we're certain his background in technical writing and obvious passion for automobiles will serve him well here. Joel's story should also stand as an example to all of you tipsters out there – anything can happen in the blogosphere.
