  1. Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more
    than just your articles? I mean, what you say is important and everything.
    But think of if you added some great visuals or video clips to give your
    posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics
    and clips, this website could definitely be one of the greatest in its niche.
    Awesome blog!

    • Thank you so much for your kind words! I don’t have more pictures or video because I’m not all that tech savvy, but I am teachable! Perhaps learning to add more visuals should be a goal for me. Now, when do I have time to do this?!

  2. Thank you for your interest!
