  1. I think everything posted was very logical. However, what
    about this? suppose you were to write a awesome title?

    grabbed people’s attention? I mean 10 Vegas Fun Facts |
    andyblumenthal is kinda plain. You should look at Yahoo’s front page and see how they write news
    titles to get viewers interested. You might add a video or a related
    pic or two to get people interested about everything’ve got to say.
    In my opinion, it might bring your posts a little
    bit more interesting.
