Plugging away

Now don't line up and yell "Dummie" at me because I already know I am. Here I was wondering why I haven't had the attention of race teams, sponsors, and organizations that so many other NASCAR bloggers seem to get.

Then it hit me. Those emails I have been discarding as Spam? Those are unsolicited, but welcome information from various teams and sponsors pr departments sent by people who read my blog. Those are the press releases I have been wanting all along.

Here I was thinking they want me to plug their product or driver, and I, of course refused to do so without some sort of monetary or other compensation. Finally I realized that comes AFTER I pay attention to the press releases.

Oh well, I'll catch on to this blogging thing sooner or later.

I know what you are talking about, I am going to New Hampshire this weekend for Sunday's NASCAR Cup Series race and I will be on Kevin Harvick's #29 Shell pitbox, this is courtesy of Shell and Edelman.

This is my second time, my first time was last september, it just so happened to be my first Cup race, amazing and I saw Clint Bowyer go by me on his way to victory lane..perfect. Oh did I mention, I got my father to come along with me as we are both bloggers...media creditals are sweet.

The point is, sometimes you get lucky and it was all due to one email from a young lady wanting to promote Shell Motorsports to me, something to blog on.

Good Luck.

Yeah Jim,

I know what you are talking about, I received an email from a lady from AMP energy drink. I told her I would put a blog entry about the contest AMP has going for getting your name on Junior's car and in return she is now sending me an AMP Junior ballcap and that limited edition 4 can series of Junior on the AMP energy drink. I may not be at the races but it is nice to get recognized from time to time.
