  1. Having read this I thought it was very informative.
    I appreciate you finding the time and energy to put this article together.

    I once again find myself personally spending way too much time both reading and posting comments.
    But so what, it was still worth it!

  2. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what
    all is required to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog
    like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very internet savvy
    so I’m not 100% positive. Any recommendations or advice would
    be greatly appreciated. Kudos
