  1. I don’t even know how I ended up here, but I thought this post was great.
    I don’t know who you are but certainly you are going to a famous blogger if you aren’t already ;)
    Cheers!

  2. First off I would like to say excellent blog! I had a quick question
    that I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself
    and clear your head prior to writing. I’ve had a hard time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out.
    I truly 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? Thank you!

  3. I really love your site.. Pleasant colors & theme. Did
    you create this website yourself? Please reply back as I’m attempting to create my own
    personal blog and would love to know where you got this from or just what the theme is called.
    Appreciate it!
