  2. I believe what you posted was very logical. However, consider this, what if you added a little content? I ain’t suggesting your content is not solid, however suppose you added a post title to maybe grab a person’s attention? I mean %BLOG_TITLE% is a little boring. You could peek at Yahoo’s front page and note how they create article headlines to grab viewers interested. You might add a video or a picture or two to grab people excited about what you’ve got to say. Just my opinion, it would bring your blog a little livelier.
