  1. I think everything typed made a lot of sense. But, consider
    this, suppose you were to write a killer title?

    I ain’t saying your information is not solid.,
    however what if you added a post title to possibly get folk’s attention? I mean SIFF unveils its
    Asian New Talent Award nominees | Shaoyi Sun’s Film Review Blog is a
    little boring. You might glance at Yahoo’s front page and note how they create article headlines to grab viewers to open the
    links. You might try adding a video or a picture or
    two to get people excited about what you’ve written. In my opinion,
    it might bring your blog a little bit more interesting.
