  1. First off I want to say awesome blog! I had a quick
    question which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was
    interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your head before writing.
    I have had a hard time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out.
    I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10
    to 15 minutes are generally lost simply just trying to
    figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Many thanks! http://cavalrymenforromney.com/

  3. Hey! I know this is kinda off topic nevertheless I’d figured
    I’d ask. Would you be interested in trading links
    or maybe guest authoring a blog article or vice-versa?
    My blog addresses a lot of the same subjects as yours and I feel we could
    greatly benefit from each other. If you’re interested feel free to shoot me an email.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Terrific blog by the way! http://ciaalis2u.com/
