  1. Hmm it looks like your site ate my first comment (it was
    super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I
    wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I too am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to the whole thing.
    Do you have any suggestions for rookie blog writers?
    I’d really appreciate it.
