    what if you composed a catchier post title? I mean, I don’t
    want to tell you how to run your blog, but what if you added
    a post title that makes people want more? I mean Shugharee Jammani, the
    Passionate Rapper is a little boring. You ought to glance at Yahoo’s front page and watch how they create
    post headlines to grab viewers to click. You might add a video or a pic or

    more interesting.

    I’m going to start my own blog in the near future but I’m
    having a difficult time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design and style
    seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something
    unique. P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but
    I had to ask!
