  2. Hi! I’m at work browsing your blog from my new apple iphone! Just wanted to say I love reading through your blog and look forward to all your posts! Carry on the fantastic work!

  3. Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is important and all. However imagine if you added some great photos or videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and clips, this blog could undeniably be one of the greatest in its niche. Terrific blog!
