    Its like you read my mind! You appear 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 bit, but instead of that, this is excellent blog. An excellent read. I’ll certainly be back.

    My developer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses. But he’s
    tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on a variety
    of websites for about a year and am worried about switching to another platform.
    I have heard very good things about
    Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress posts into it?
    Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!

    Everything published made a bunch of sense. However, think on this, suppose you composed a catchier post
    title? I mean, I don’t wish to tell you how to run your blog,
    however suppose you added a headline that makes
    people want more? I mean World Shaking Events | All Our Yesterdays
    is a little plain. You could glance at Yahoo’s front
    page and see how they write article headlines to grab
    viewers to click. You might add a related video or a related picture or two to get people excited about what you’ve
    written. Just my opinion, it would make your blog a little

    1. Charles Eaves

      Yahoo news doesn’t impress me at all. Sorry! never satisfied with any aspect of our operations always seeking to improve.

I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.|
