  1. I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the layout of your blog? Its very well written; I love what you’ve got to say. But maybe you could add a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. You’ve got an awful lot of text for only having only 1 or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

  3. Hi! I know this is sort of off-topic however I had to ask. Does building a well-established blog such as yours require a lot of work? I am brand new to blogging however I do write in my diary everyday. I’d like to start a blog so I can share my experience and feelings online. Please let me know if you have any kind of recommendations or tips for new aspiring blog owners. Appreciate it!
