  1. I was curious if you ever considered changing the structure of
    your website? 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 1
    or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
