Not by me, though. Consider this a "Dear Abby" for blog publishers and, you, proud, angry, often cruel commentariat should provide your helpful tips on success.

Now, thick skin is a requirement for every blogger. But do try to be helpful as well.

Don't just torture all these people and trounce on their dreams in the comments - email them your tips, your real suggestions, your advice, etc. Touch lives and all that.

Today: Quarterrack

Hey Deadspin,

I'm Lola, and my blog is QuarterRack (quarterrack.blogspot.com), and it's a humor blog about the NFL. I have a small, but loyal following, and I'm getting to where I have a sense for what my voice is, but I'd like your help.

I've thrown a variety of things at the wall, and I think that I've reached the point where I need to choose the kinds of thing that are working, and spend my time on those. I get the sense that charts and lists are my strengths, but I'd like to know if A. I'm wrong about my strengths, and B. anything that I'm doing that needs a little tweaking, a lot of tweaking, is just flat out not funny, etc.

Of course, any advice is gladly appreciated.

Thanks!
Lola

Go on. Advise. Charts and lists.
