  2. I believe everything posted was very logical. But, what about this?
    suppose you added a little content? I am not suggesting your content is
    not good, however suppose you added a post title to maybe
    grab people's attention? I mean "Lemon poppy seed donuts" is kinda vanilla. You ought to look at Yahoo's
    home page and note how they write news headlines to get
    viewers interested. You might add a video or a pic or two to get readers excited about everything've written. In my opinion, it would make your posts a little livelier.
