Some 'Guidelines' for Sending Article / Column / Blog Links

Jayski.com does and will NOT post blogs articles / posts / links that are nothing more then posts of team
or NASCAR or Team/driver/sponsor PR's or transcripts (even slightly altered or rewritten);
or are just notes of news reported thru out the week, reported on the site already.
Articles and Blogs must and should be original content, opinions, clean of vulgar language, proper spelling / grammar and more then just a few paragraphs
and all are required to have an authors/writers name and contact info like email address posted

ALL articles / columns / blogs MUST be NASCAR related, even if they are, doesn't mean they will be posted as posted many times above:
If the 'article / blog' is nothing but a Press Release, stats from other sites, etc., it ain't getting linked.

The opinions expressed in any editorial/articles/blogs linked on this page or the site are not of the Jayski site but are presented in the interest of giving readers a variety of points of views and some enjoyment.

This page is updated once or twice a day, usually in the early morning and late morning only

Questions about their content, page design, colors or objections to those opinions should be directed towards the author of the article or the site that posts it.

Most of these links will take you to another site

No guarantee that the links work as sites move pages/links, reuse the link or remove them after a certain amount of time

Links usually posted in a rough alphabetical order by site / blog

to submit fan or other articles /column links, etc, please follow the below format putting the info in place of the one shown as an example:
Racing Stories (site name)
http://www.racingstories.org/story/nascar.html (direct link)
I love NASCAR (article title)
by Joe Fan (author name, first and last)

[just send the info, not the heading too (or what is in parens)] and no HTML coding needed

This page Born on Date: August 16, 2000

NOTE to authors of articles and blogs: have gotten some complaints in the past from authors/writers/bloggers who send me their links asking and complaining when their link is not added to the article links page. Jayski.com is under NO obligation to post ANYTHING sent. If it seems different, original, interesting, clear and decently written...it will be CONSIDERED. Jayski.com does not just post a blog link because someone reads a PR and posts info from that PR. Or if someone gathers a bunch of news from other newspaper / news site and makes a blog or notes section - do NOT expect it to get posted/linked. Jayski.com checks about 100 news/newspaper/magazine/NASCAR sites a day for article links and gets about 30-45 email requests a day. Jayski.com does NOT respond informing folks if their link gets use or why is was not used. Many sites posted here have a good working relationship with Jayski.com and they get the benefit of the doubt. Blogs and newer sites tend to be watched for a while before links are posted and Jayski.com sees how they post and what their agenda may be. This is not a message board/forum/fan/social media page, where anyone can post and it is not a right to be linked. Thanks and happy posting....

Article titles in ALL CAPS/UPPERCASE will not be linked.
But it is NASCAR not Nascar, I don't post links where folks can't use the proper word NASCAR. NOT Nascar or NA$CAR but NASCAR, show some respect.

Jayski.com usually limits a site to five articles a day, if more are sent, something will be left off.
Jayski.com does NOT double post the same articles by the same writers from different sites / blogs or who sends them first
if a writer prefers to have an article linked to a certain site they must let Jayski.com know.
If the same article is changed to look different in effort to get it reposted, that writer/site/author will ceased to be posted in the future.

Jayski.com may link to some fan / personal blog sites /pages if they are interesting and about NASCAR
Jayski.com does NOT link websites / blogs that are mean, nasty, driver or/and NASCAR bashing or vulgar. any story on the blog/website must have a direct link to that particular article, not just a jump, main page or a page full of different commentary. And if an article, blog or site is just to bash drivers or NASCAR, they will not be included in the links or this page. Articles that are just team/driver/track PR's or basic news will not be posted.

just because a link is submitted, does not mean it will be posted and linked, but it will be considered.

Personal YouTube Videos or links to them are NOT posted

NO APRIL FOOLS HERE: please do not send any April Fools type articles / blogs or humor / jokes posts that poke fun at NASCAR, fans or drivers.
Do not send articles / blogs links that lead readers to believe something that is not true
Jayski.com will not post article links to sites / blogs that are nothing but a rehash of a press release from a team or transcript or simple race winning post
