This design is steller! You obviously know how to keep a reader amused.
Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog

enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.
Too cool!

I was curious if you ever considered 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 one or two
pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

First of all I want to say fantastic blog!

I had a quick question which I'd like to ask if you don't
mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your
mind prior to writing. I have had a tough time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out
there. I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first
10 to 15 minutes are wasted just trying to figure out
how to begin. Any recommendations or hints? Kudos!

Hi there! I understand this is kind of off-topic however I needed to ask.
Does running a well-established blog such as yours require a large amount of work?
I am completely new to running a blog but I do write in my diary on
a daily basis. I'd like to start a blog so I will be able to share my experience and thoughts online. Please let me know if you have any kind of ideas or tips for new aspiring blog owners. Thankyou!
