  1. First of all I want to say superb blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing. I have had a hard time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out there. I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints? Thank you!|

  2. Hey! I know this is kinda off topic nevertheless I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing a blog post or vice-versa? My blog goes over a lot of the same topics as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from each other. If you’re interested feel free to send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you! Terrific blog by the way!|

  8. I think that what you composed was very reasonable. However, think on this, what if you composed a catchier title? I ain’t suggesting your information isn’t good, however what if you added a post title that makes people want more? I mean BLOG_TITLE is kinda boring. You should look at Yahoo’s front page and see how they write news headlines to get viewers to open the links. You might add a video or a related pic or two to get readers excited about what you’ve written. In my opinion, it could bring your posts a little bit more interesting.|

You might glance at Yahoo’s home page and note how they create news titles to get people interested. You might add a related video or a related pic or two to get people interested about everything’ve written. Just my opinion, it might make your blog a little livelier.|
