You asked me to look at your website. I did. I have looked at hundreds (maybe thousands of websites). Your website looks the same as everyone else. It bores me and strikes as a vanity project created to validate your narcissism.
Why would I, as a reader, go to your website every day?
You say your site is different. Why? You talk about the same bullshit as everyone else.

Do you feel sick when you hit publish?
I do. I feel like deleting posts as soon as they are published.
There’s not a post that doesn’t leave me feeling slightly sick to my stomach. This post will offend a lot of people, and they will leave. I will hurt feelings.
You may think I’m cruel, but I have never answered your emails because I don’t want to be a dream killer. Yet the truth is your website is the same as every other website out there.
There is only one you, but you are acting like everyone else.
You want people to think you’re cool and awesome. You post vanity pics. You only publish posts that make you look good.
Have you cried while writing a post because you had to go deep into your heart and soul to find the words to express yourself?
If there is no sense of, “Fuck, am I really going to post this,” then why would I read it? Your website should be a three-dimensional man, not a piece of cardboard.
Your website can be improved, but not until you do a gut check.
Who are YOU? What is your struggle? What is your story?
I’m tired of looking at generic ass websites.
Until you are prepared to leave a piece of your soul in each post, until you are ready to feel like you’re about to throw up after you hit publish, then you’re not ready for the big time.
I wish you the best of luck.
