  1. I dont know what to say. This blog is fantastic. Thats not really a really huge statement, but its all I could come up with after reading this. You know so much about this subject. So much so that you made me want to learn more about it. Your blog is my stepping stone, my friend. Thanks for the heads up on this subject.

  2. Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is important and all. But think about if you added some great images or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and clips, this website could certainly be one of the best in its field. Fantastic blog!
