    As a WIRED reader, I’d like to welcome you to my site.  As you may have read in Jessi Hempel’s article, I started this blog almost 9 months ago as a way to help my fellow drivers figure out the best ways to maximize their rideshare income.

    I’d like to use this opportunity to introduce you to The Rideshare Guy Blog & Podcast and talk about some of the most popular portions of the site:

    What’s It Like To Be A Driver?

    You might think that being a rideshare driver is pretty easy but there are actually a lot of nuances that go into it.  Since I drive for both Uber and Lyft, I’ve written extensively about the two and I love to compare them:

    If you’re thinking about driving, Uber is currently offering a $100 bonus after you complete 20 rides and Lyft is offering a $50 bonus after you do 20 rides too.  And, if you’re a current rideshare driver that hasn’t signed up for Uber yet you could get up to $1,000 after just one ride by signing up with Uber.  The only requirement is that you’ve given at least one ride with another rideshare company (other than Uber) prior to 1/8/2015.
