    Nathaniel, I read your article and I thought it was very good. As far as advice goes, just do your own thing. If you write about things that interest you, odds are they'll interest other people too. I only joined the site last November, and was fortunate enough to be promoted to Featured Columnist a month later. If you only want to write about the Yankees, then you will have to be sure to relay that to Stephen, our team leader, if you become a FC.
