well, to be honest, I had started 2 times to give you some sort of something. Truth is, if i stumbled across your blog once, I prolly wouldnt come back..only because what you write about doesnt interest me.
You seem to have an established voice, that of a young black man, who likes to swear (thats OK, im not a prude), and use the word "jigga" alot. I can tell you though, your "audience" doesnt read blogs. And yes, that statement is bloggable.
You might need to work on appealing to a wider audience, which might mean writing about more than hand-jobs and male bosses that are bitches, or learn to expect that not too many people are going to read that long term.. or ..?
More generally, you might consider writing on "topics", I dont know.
My personal idea, and I struggle with this a lot myself, is that bloggers not only need a voice, they need to be contemporary. I think, but do not know for a fact, that people read unknown blogs, basically because they are looking for something, an opinion on something, a song, a movie, blah blah blah. That something is usually something "news-worthy", and recent.
Or, you go the other route, say f*ck it, write what you want, and start the first hip-hop blog-ring-thingermajigga ?
Does that help? prolly not, but you did ask :)
