    suppose you added a post title that grabbed folk’s attention?
    I mean Military Intercepts Ransom Payment To Boko Haram,
    Frees Captives – Newsnowonline is kinda vanilla. You might
    peek at Yahoo’s home page and note how they create article headlines to get people to
    click. You might try adding a video or a pic or two to grab readers excited about everything’ve written.
    In my opinion, it might bring your posts a little livelier.
