The Learning Curve: The Other Fifteen

We may earn a commission from links on this page.

This segment is called "The Learning Curve" where you, young blog proprietor, will get a link to your new site on Deadspin. Any and all questions you may have about being a successful blogger will (hopefully) be answered.

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's entry: The Other Fifteen

Yo Daulerio,

You never respond to my emails, and though I've tried to be cool about it, I have to admit that I'm hurting inside. I tried to meet you at the Blogs with Balls conference, but just like the one hot chick at a bar full of horny dudes, you were surrounded by other bloggers until you made your early exit and I never had a chance to say "hi." Actually, Sarah Spain, Amy K. Nelson, and Hannah Patrick were MORE like the hot chicks at a bar full of horny dudes since those three girls are really attractive, and that conference took place at a bar that was full of nerds who write on the internet about their sports obsession. But either way, I'm taking this opportunity to reach out to you and say that we can still make this work. I know many of the blogs featured on The Learning Curve are from struggling newbies who need lots of advice, and I might not fit that bill. My site's been up since May, and we've been pretty successful given the short time we've been at it. I'm not sure what advice you'll offer, but I know you can toss me a little exposure and let your readers give me some feedback and critiques. So come on. Put me in coach.
