  1. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the structure 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?
