On The Blog

Lee Maclaughlan is the man behind a new service for speedway fans that aims to get you all tapping away at your keyboards. His website at www.speedway-blog.co.uk allows you to write and publish your own articles on the sport, sharing your thoughts and opinions (unedited) with other speedway fans. Of course, blogging sites are nothing new, but the key differentiator here is that all the blogs on the site are 100% about speedway.

So, what is a blog, we asked Lee to give us his own definition:

"In my opinion blogging is just writing your own thoughts and saying anything you want to say. not having other people telling you what they think is correct or incorrect with what you say. Unlike forums where this is often the case."

There are already a few speedway blogs on the web, but the concept of hosting a number of new ones on a single site is a good one. Obviously the success or otherwise of the site will depend upon the quality and quantity of contributions - so how have things gone for Lee so far?

"So far the response has been okay and we have had quite a few member sign ups, but sadly hardly any of the registered members are actually posting anything. I would however say that it has not been too bad a response on the whole, but I would not mind a higher response in the future. I aim to interest fans in many different countries and have users from all over the speedway world. I also hope that the site can be professionally rebuilt and customised when it's fully established."

So, if you're interested, how do you go about adding your own blog?

"Couldn't be easier, all you need to do is register then login. There is a 'write a blog' page where you simply type your blog and click 'post'. Alternatively you can just click 'save' and it will be left as a draft in your account for you to add to another time, or perhaps just so it is 100% private."

If you'd like to start writing your own speedway blog, or are interested in reading those that others have written, then check out www.speedway-blog.co.uk
