    I believe what you said made a great deal of sense.
    But, consider this, suppose you added a little content? I am not suggesting your information isn’t good, but what if you added a title to possibly
    get folk’s attention? I mean Make a bouquet of fabric flowers for
    your scrapbook layout | Creating Keepsakes Blog is a little vanilla.
    You should glance at Yahoo’s front page and watch how they
    write article headlines to get viewers to click. You might add a related video or a
    related picture or two to grab people interested about everything’ve written.
    In my opinion, it could make your website a little livelier.

    I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very good
    results. If you know of any please share. Many thanks!
