Hi CJ—Zander here.
"your a loser who can only argue online. you fuck off!
You seriously need to kill yourself. If not then atleast contract Testicular Cancer, we dont need you reproducing."
Avoid the profanity and personal attacks CJ.
Hey CJ—this is Zander Freund, Bleacher Report's Community Director.
"WTF?????? Is this an article or just an old hag telling us her life story??? Seriously, what is the point to this, that you love MMA??? I guess writing 50 something articles on the subject doesnt show what a big fanatic you truly are.
I thought you told me you wanted to be a champion horse rider, not a martial artist...Sounds to me like someone is contradicting themselves. I also have to ask, why do you write such random crap???? Like the poetry one, or that what would jesus do article. God that was such a piece of shit I couldnt even finish it.
How about actually taking the time to think of a well thought out article, something that challenges someones thinking, instead of just writing the first thing that pops into your head. Another thought would be to make sure it relates to MMA.
BTW your giving Christians a bad name. There is a passage in the Bible about the man who prays allowed in public (you) is sinning and the man who prays silently and alone is looked fondly upon in the eyes of God (every other self-respecting Christian)"
Please refrain from making personal attacks and using profanity in the comment threads. Consider this a formal warning.
CJ, My email is firstname.lastname@example.org please drop me a line. I would love to help you.
CJ, I may not have commented on all of your articles, but I have read every one of them. I will pray privately and silently for you to recieve the success you desire before you are as ancient and dried up as I am. Love you Honey! JUST HANG IN THERE, YOU WILL SEE.
It seems you are getting frustrated about exposure, if I could give you a couple quick things. To get on the main page you article has to be edited, preferably by someone that does a lot of editing on the site. Even the top writers won't be posted on the Front page if their articles are unedited. The quicker they are edited the quicker they hit the front. Timing is also important, any article will get bumped by another article that is released then edited. If an article is ranked well by others than it may stay up longer but not always. I know it can be frustrating but sometimes you just have to write for the sake of writing and everything else will follow. I can guarantee that the regulars are reading your articles but the web traffic may be low because of lack of name recognition or key phrases that web searches hit on. Thats why every damn Kimbo article gets 10,000 reads even if it's a piece of crap. If you enjoy writing don't give up and keep working hard and everything will fall into place. I just thought this might help, all the best to you CJ!
