    But what baffles me is the fact that none of the press icon of the week has ever shown interest in any of the press members…. that’s not encouraging enough, you guys should work on that and start crushing on co-pen pushers… #lol#

  13. Amazing blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m totally confused .. Any ideas? Many thanks!

  14. Hey there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with? I’m planning to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a tough time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

  15. Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about
    this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you
    could do with some pics to drive the message home
    a little bit, but instead of that, this is
    magnificent blog. An excellent read. I’ll definitely be back.

  22. I think what you postedtypedthink what you postedtypedbelieve what you postedtypedsaidbelieve what you postedtypedWhat you postedwrote was very logicala ton of sense. But, what about this?consider this, what if you were to write a killer headlinetitle?content?typed a catchier title? I ain’t saying your content isn’t good.ain’t saying your content isn’t gooddon’t want to tell you how to run your blog, but what if you added a titlesomethingheadlinetitle that grabbed a person’s attention?maybe get a person’s attention?want more? I mean %BLOG_TITLE% is a little vanilla. You might peek at Yahoo’s home page and watch how they createwrite post headlines to get viewers interested. You might add a video or a related picture or two to get readers interested about what you’ve written. Just my opinion, it might bring your postsblog a little livelier.
