Yikes. The negativity is strong here.  Never will I tell anybody whether their interests are a good or bad idea.  We're not all world class athletes; for some, the high school level is our platform on which to shine (myself and 90-95% of 11W included.

So speaking of platform, know your audience.  This is indeed an open blogging community carried by encouraging contributors, but you're writing about your own personal sports achievements in the form of a memoir.  It's shallow but true - we don't know who you are on an extraordinary basis (celebrity, pro athlete, inspiring athlete battling illness), so it's tough for us to care.  You might see that some other forums are titled like yours - but again they are forums insofar that they ask "now, what are your guys' best memories?"

I see what you're trying to share though, and people shouldn't just shit on you while ignoring your sincerity. https://wordpress.com/  is a great place to start your own blog.  Use the power of social media to get some visitors.  I recommend sports novels like "Bleachers" by John Grisham to guide you on how to effectively depict sports moments, scenes and emotions.

Basically, you're choosing the wrong place to share. But, you're a Buckeye. I hope you find your writing voice!

Seems like it was aligned with their black and gold logo - I'll be paying close attention though to see if they have bright orange or crimson confetti ready to go this year.
