Dude, you aren't going to get any legitimate responses on here. We have been flooded with your types lately. Nothing you have to say is going to be new to anyone but the extremely n00bish, and most of them are 1) going to be enlightened by the TLS vets soon via a stroll through the Legal Employment thread or 2) too thick to listen to anyone's advice, so you're wasting your time.
The TLS veterans on here have done their research, are attending schools for the right reasons, and have mitigated the potential risk as much as possible (scholarships, going to T10s, jobs in hand, solid backup options, etc.) And believe it or not, a lot of us want to be lawyers because it is a field we are passionate about. Shocking, I know.
Feel free to contribute to our site, but please don't treat us like a bunch of gung-ho, brazen, uneducated 0Ls. And definitely do not actively promote your blog.

I don't want to open Pandora's Box here, but I'll add one other point. I understand that blogging about the "law school scam" is hot right now, and why not? - it is easy to do and there is legitimately something to complain about. I get it. However, coming to message boards where hundreds of 0Ls dwell and telling them/suggesting/indirectly hinting at not going to law school isn't really helpful. New standards need to be created in reporting employment statistics. Things like this - http://www.top-law-schools.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=114338
- are helpful. Telling 0Ls not to go to law school is really not.
