    Away on June 23rd & 24th | Gift of Hope Blog is a little vanilla.

    You should peek at Yahoo’s home page and note how they create news headlines to get viewers to open the links.
    You might try adding a video or a pic or two to grab readers interested about
    what you’ve got to say. In my opinion, it could bring your posts a little bit more interesting.
