@tdowling, come on buddy, at least describe it a little bit before you just out right promote your own website.

Sure, so Free Thoughts is my personal commentary on contemporary culture. A bit general but I post about something in culture (american culture, popular culture; e.g. movies, music, sports, books) and try to draw some greater conclusion.

they’re just a page long, so far i’ve written about the movie The Dark Knight Rises, The Olympic Games, the novel Cloud Atlas, and recently the album The Heist by Macklemore.

Not really trying to plug myself, as I am looking for honest feedback about my writing and voice.

thanks!

@tdowling, my only point is that honest feedback can be received by this site simply by creating discussion posts yourself in which you discuss them here, rather than linking people away from the site.

This is not to say I believe you are solely using the site for its numbers, but I have to be on the look out for the occasional user that DOES want to abuse the privilege of having such a great community to talk to. I hope you can understand this.

I understand. I’m a newb, so my apologies. I’ll just post my articles directly on the site, that’s probably a better idea

thank you

I really like it. Your writing is super clear; I wish I could get my thoughts across that simply. Thanks for sharing :)
