    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 two pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
