  1. I seldom create comments, however after reading through some of the remarks on this page The Emotion Book Party : How It All Went? BookRepublic. I do have some questions for you if it’s allright. Is it only me or do a few of the comments appear like they are left by brain dead folks? 😛 And, if you are writing on additional online sites, I’d like to keep up with you. Could you post a list of all of your social networking sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

  2. Hi would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with? I’m planning
    to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a hard time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something
    unique. P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
