    I think everything posted was very logical.
    But, think on this, suppose you added a little information? I
    am not suggesting your content is not solid.,
    however suppose you added a headline that grabbed folk’s attention? I mean Netapp Admin Pocket
    Guide | Brookman is kinda vanilla. You might glance at Yahoo’s home page and note how they create news titles to get people to click.

    You might try adding a video or a picture or two to get readers excited
    about what you’ve got to say. In my opinion, it would
    bring your blog a little livelier.

      My blog is for tech people and tech people don’t care about pretty pictures and cute titles… that is what yahoo is for and I suggest you stay over there it seems more your speed. Engineers need straight to the point facts. Get past the fluff and tell it like it is and btw my blog gets over 10,000 hits a day.
