  1. I believe what you wrote made a lot of sense. But, consider this,
    what if you were to create a awesome headline?
    I am not suggesting your content isn’t solid., but suppose you added a title that grabbed
    a person’s attention? I mean MTV VMA Nominees Announced | Talk Music
    To Me is a little boring. You could glance at Yahoo’s front page and note how they create
    post headlines to grab people to click. You might add a video or a picture or two
    to grab readers excited about everything’ve got to say.
    Just my opinion, it might make your posts a little bit more interesting.
