In the world of racing journalism, blogging has long played an important role. Arguably, more of a role than any other sport. The website Jayski.com began in the early days of blogging. They have broken many stories that beat other racing publications, even those bigger media outlets.
Recently, more and more racing journalists have begun switching to their own media coverage on their blogs. Jeff Gluck has had a long career covering NASCAR for many different major publications. This year he decided to leave his post at the U.S.A Today and focus all of his coverage on his blog. The flexibility and time around his family were the reasons for his switch.
More coverage is another advantage of this trend. The sport is so vast and there are so many levels, the big publications tend to ignore the lower series. With the blogging world becoming bigger in racing, all of the series get covered. It makes it easier to hear about and know the upcoming drivers who will become the future stars of the sport. Blogging is one of the greatest things in the coverage of racing.
Blogging is important to the racing world and is vital to the coverage of the sport. This trend is not surprising as it has been around since the beginning of the internet. With the internet, racing coverage has become more in depth and has never been better than it is right now. That is all thanks to blogging.
