    I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your blog?
    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
    2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?
