Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is important and everything. However just imagine if you added some great images or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and clips, this site could definitely be one of the greatest in its niche. Good blog!
