  11. Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your
    articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and everything. But think about if you added
    some great photos or videos to give your posts more, “pop”!
    Your content is excellent but with images and clips, this site could certainly be one of the very best
    in its field. Superb blog!
