  1. Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your
    articles? I mean, what you say is important and all.
    But imagine if you added some great visuals or videos to give your
    posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and
    video clips, this site could definitely be one of the best in its
    field. Excellent blog!
