    suppose you composed a catchier title? I ain’t saying your information is not solid, but what if you added a post title that grabbed a
    person’s attention? I mean Faatinah to wear blinkers in Black Caviar Lightning – HorseRacing.com.au is kinda plain. You could peek at Yahoo’s front page and
    note how they create news titles to get people interested.
    You might add a video or a picture or two to grab people excited about what you’ve got to say.
    Just my opinion, it could bring your posts a little livelier.
