Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles?
I mean, what you say is fundamental and all. However think of if
you added some great pictures or videos to give your posts more, "pop"!

Your content is excellent but with pics and video clips, this blog could certainly be one of
the best in its field. Good blog!

When someone writes an piece of writing he/she maintains the image
of a user in his/her mind that how a user can know it.
So that's why this paragraph is perfect.
Thanks!

I was wondering if you ever considered changing the page layout of your website?
Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with
it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two images.
Maybe you could space it out better?
