    to writing. I’ve had a difficult time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there.
    I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints?

    Nonetheless, the posts are too quick for newbies.
    Could you please prolong them a bit from next time?
    Thanks for the post.

    is important and all. But just imagine if you added some great photos or video clips
    to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and
