  1. I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the 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?

  2. Asking questions are actually nice thing if you are not understanding something entirely, but this paragraph offers good understanding yet.
