    May I suggest
    I also think you should just keep writting, and be consistent on publishing regularly.

    Don't pay attention to anything anyone tells you.

    Every time you listen to one person, you alienate several others. Do what you think is best, write it how you think is best, and realize every thing you ever say online will cause at least one person to tell you how much you suck, and that every thing you like is wrong.

    Also, take up smoking and drinking, you'll need both to cut down the misery

    There are a lot of blog sites out there you can join. Start out doing a daily or weekly post, submit articles to the online tech sites. Don't let haters get you down. Do what makes you happy.

    Thanks for all the input guys. I have actually started writing for androidspin.com . I know your not supposed to link competitive sites but just go there and search for my articles. Search Davion Witherspoon and tell me what you think. I really like doing this. Hopefully this could be a career someday .
