    I was curious if you ever thought of changing the
    page 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?
