    I was curious if you ever thought of changing the
    page layout of your website? 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 2 images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
