  1. Hey there would you mind sharing which blog
    platform you’re working with? I’m planning to start my own blog in the
    near future but I’m having a hard time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design seems different then
    most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

  2. Greetings! Very helpful advice in this particular post!
    It’s the little changes that produce the most important changes.
    Thanks a lot for sharing!

  3. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point.
    You obviously know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence
    on just posting videos to your site when you could be giving us something informative to

  4. May I simply say what a comfort to find somebody who really knows what they are talking about on the web.
    You definitely know how to bring an issue to light and make it important.

    More and more people need to look at this and understand this side of
    the story. It’s surprising you aren’t more popular
    since you surely have the gift.

  5. Hi, i think that i saw you visited my blog so i came to
    “return the favor”.I’m attempting to find things to improve
    my site!I suppose its ok to use a few of your ideas!!

  6. First off I would like to say terrific blog! I had a quick question that I’d
    like to ask if you don’t mind. I was interested to find out how
    you center yourself and clear your mind prior to writing.
    I have had a difficult time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out there.
    I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted just
    trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints?
    Many thanks!

  7. Hmm it appears like your blog ate my first comment (it was super
    long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I had written and
    say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog writer
    but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any tips and hints for novice blog writers?

    I’d really appreciate it.
