  1. Greetings from Los angeles! I’m bored to death at work so I decided to browse your website on my iphone during lunch break.
    I love the knowledge you present here and can’t wait to
    take a look when I get home. I’m surprised at how quick your
    blog loaded on my mobile .. I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G ..

    Anyways, amazing blog!

  2. First off I want to say excellent blog! I had a quick question that I’d
    like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to know
    how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing.
    I’ve had a hard time clearing my thoughts in getting my
    ideas out there. I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems
    like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted simply just trying to figure out
    how to begin. Any suggestions or hints? Many thanks!
