    I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the layout of your site?
    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
    images. Maybe you could space it out better?
