  1. Have you ever considered adding more videos to your blog posts to keep the readers more entertained? I mean I just read through the entire article of yours and it was quite good but since I’m more of a visual learner,I found that to be more helpful well let me know how it turns out. This is good…thanks for sharing

  2. Hey I just wanted to let you know, I actually like the writing on your web site. But I am employing Flock on a machine running version 9.10 of Xubuntu and the look and feel aren’t quite right. Not a big deal, I can still essentially read the articles and explore for info, but just wanted to inform you about that. The navigation bar is kind of hard to use with the config I’m running. Keep up the great work!
