  • I was curious if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your site?
    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 pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

  • First off I would like to say fantastic blog! I had a quick question in which I’d
    like to ask if you don’t mind. I was interested to find out how you center
    yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing. I’ve had a hard time clearing
    my thoughts in getting my ideas out there.
    I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like
    the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted just
    trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips?
    Thank you!
