and views online. Please let me know if you have any suggestions or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers.

I drop a comment each time I like a post on a website or I have something to add to
the conversation. It's a result of the sincerness communicated in the post I looked at. And after this article "resume". I was actually moved enough to post a commenta response ;-) I actually do have a few questions for you if it's
okay. Could it be simply me or do a few of the responses
appear as if they are coming from brain dead people? :-P And, if you are posting at additional online sites,
I would like to follow you. Could you make a list every one
of all your community sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
