    I was wondering if you ever considered 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 1 or 2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?
