    Hi, I’m a college English student and I’m learning a lot about writing by viewing blogs. I really enjoy your style of writing. It’s simple to understand but with excellent details. Your choice of words makes it easy to read and absorb. That’s a huge part of writing. Your readers have to be able to understand what you’re conveying to them and the publication has to be engaging. You need to engage your readers, so they will come back again. You do a great job with all of these aspects. Thx!

    Great discussion. And I REALLY like that you practice what you preach. That’s when you can tell a post has come together.
    And I’m also fascinated by how fresh you made the routine [admit it: what you just shared has been regurgitated millions of time. ;-)].
