  20. I think everything published was very reasonable. However, what about
    this? suppose you were to create a killer headline?
    I am not suggesting your information is not good., however suppose you added a post title that grabbed a person’s attention? I mean Governor Christie’s

    Development is kinda vanilla. You could glance at Yahoo’s home page and watch how they create post titles to get people interested.
    You might try adding a video or a pic or two to
    grab people interested about what you’ve written. Just my opinion, it would bring your blog a little bit
    more interesting.
