  1. I think what you published was actually very logical. But, think about this, what if you were to write a awesome headline?
    I ain’t suggesting your information isn’t solid, but suppose you added something to maybe grab folk’s attention?
    I mean Chess Quiz is a little plain. You ought to peek at Yahoo’s front page and see how
    they create post headlines to get viewers to open the links.

    You might add a related video or a pic or two to get people interested about everything’ve got to
    say. Just my opinion, it might bring your posts a little bit more interesting.
