    Story of Me (however screwed up)

    I'm Alex, I'm 15, and I live in Ohio. I have two parents who are more screwed up than I am, and I like to write. This is going to look like crap next to the others, because I'm writing out of my special time [but who the heck's perfect anyway]. Between writing I play music, I am fluent in the tenor and alto saxophone, piano, guitar, tuba, and harmonica, but I seem to have a problem playing one on one with people, because I always seem to do badly. Anyway, I have written stories and things for years, but my greatest literary achievement has to be a very recent one. Less than a month ago, I was suspended from school for publishing an underground newspaper. I attend a small school, about 750 students, that has an official school newspaper that sells aproximately 175 papers a month. My newspaper, affectionately called the Bullsh#$ Central (or BSC) sold around 320 copies a week. Now if you do the math, that happens to be a whole lot of newspapers. Unfortunately that avenue of publication was closed upon my suspension, but fear not literary master-minds I was not daunted (neither was my newspaper). I decided that if I were to give up, then why even continue to write if I cannnot write what is true. I produced a series of blogs and a complicated system of accessing the system (you might as well ask what it was, really it is great). NOw i have just as many readers as I did before, and I will not give up. No matter what.

    Please give me feedback on what you would have done in a similar situation.
    thank you,
    FATS

    What about turning your publication into a online magazine? ;)

    Thanks Fats.
    I checked out the site. You are just starting the blog site out from the looks of things. I wish you all the best with it's development and readership. I hope you don't mind I've bookmarked it along with several other blog sites I read. And actually, since reading your post and checking out your site I've considered starting a few of my own blog sites.
    I'll post the links to them in our forum once I've got them set up.

    I never truly realized how many blog sites are out there, how many published authors have their own, and the range of uses for blogsites.
    I guess you could say you've sparked my interest in blogwriting.;)
    Thanks Fats.

    An underground newspaper, eh? I think we need an underground newspaper. With the general quality and censorship of our newspaper...pfft...if I was in charge, there'd be a lot of changes. :cool:
