    I think everything posted made a lot of sense. But,
    think about this, what if you added a little information? I ain’t saying
    your information is not good, however what if you
    added something that grabbed folk’s attention? I mean Old Millfun 1933-Shanghai City Highlight | Absolute China Tours Blog is a little boring.
    You ought to look at Yahoo’s home page and see how they write news titles to get people to open the links.
    You might try adding a video or a picture or two to
    get people excited about everything’ve got to say. In my opinion,
    it would make your posts a little bit more interesting.
