Howdy! Do you know if they make any plugins
to assist with Search Engine Optimization? I'm trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I'm not seeing very good gains.

If you know of any please share. Kudos!

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own weblog and was curious 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 smart so I'm not 100% certain. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.
Kudos

Hello just stumbled upon your website via Yahoo after I entered in,
"Blogger: Dotnet Developer Center" or something similar (can't quite remember exactly). In any case, I'm relieved I
found it simply because your content is exactly what I'm searching for (writing a university paper) and I hope you don't mind if I gather some information from here and I will of course credit you as the source.
Thank you.

Hmm it appears like your blog ate my first comment (it was super long) so I
guess I'll just sum it up what I had written and say, I'm
thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I'm still new to the whole thing. Do you have any tips for inexperienced blog writers? I'd really appreciate it.

Hey there! I realize this is somewhat off-topic
but I had to ask. Does running a well-established website like
yours take a massive amount work? I am completely new
to writing a blog but I do write in my journal every day. I'd like to start a blog so I can share my own experience and feelings online. Please let me know if you have any suggestions or tips for new aspiring bloggers. Thankyou!

Howdy, I am new to blogging and internet sites
in general and was wanting to know how you got the "www" included
in your web address name? I see your web address,
"http://www.blogger.com/comment.g?blogID=6726497531804034842&postID=4693930378705786697" has the www and my domain looks like, "http://mydomain.com".
Do you know exactly how I can change this?
I'm using Wordpress platform. Warm regards

Admiring the dedication you put into your website and detailed information you offer.
It's great to come across a blog every once in a while that isn't the same
unwanted rehashed material. Wonderful read! I've bookmarked your site and I'm including your RSS feeds to my Google account.

Hey there would you mind letting me know which hosting company you're utilizing? I've loaded your blog in 3 different web
browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot faster then most.
Can you recommend a good internet hosting provider at a honest price?

Thank you, I appreciate it!

Heya. I was thinking about adding a website link back to your blog since both
of our sites are primarily based around the same niche.
Would you prefer I link to you using your website address:
http://www.blogger.com/comment.g?blogID=6726497531804034842&postID=4693930378705786697 or blog title: Blogger:

I'm wondering which blogging platform you might be using? I'm new to blogging and
have been thinking about using the Tripod platform.
Do you think this is a good platform to start with? I would be really grateful if I could
ask you some questions through email so I can learn a bit more before getting started.
When you have some free time, please be sure to

Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and
gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell
to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic
but I had to tell someone!

Hello! I was interested to know if setting up a web site such your own: http://www.
blogger.com/comment.g?blogID=6726497531804034842&postID=4693930378705786697 is tough to do for unskilled people?
I have been wanting to create my own website for a
while now but have been turned off mainly because I've always assumed it required tons of work. What do you think? Thanks alot :)

Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the
video to make your point. You obviously know what
youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your blog when you could be giving us something
enlightening to read?

Hi! My name is Nichole and I personally just wanted
to say your blogging site is great! It truly is amusing simply because I use to have a blog website that virtually
had an identical web address: http://www.blogger.com/comment.
g?blogID=6726497531804034842&postID=4693930378705786697 mine was only a few characters different.
Anyways, I'm a big fan of your site and if you ever would like a guest post you should email me personally at: nicholechambliss@web.de. I take pleasure in writing!

Hi there this is somewhat of off topic but I was wondering if blogs
use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually
code with HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
