  1. This is the right web site for anybody who hopes to understand this topic.
    You understand so much its almost tough to argue with you (not
    that I actually will need to…HaHa). You definitely put a fresh spin on a subject that’s been discussed for a long time. Excellent stuff, just great!

  2. Its like you learn my thoughts! You appear to grasp so much about this, like you wrote the ebook in it or
    something. I believe that you just can do with some percent to
    force the message home a little bit, but instead of that, this is excellent blog.

    A fantastic read. I will certainly be back.

  3. Excellent blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything.

    Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress
    or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m totally confused .. Any recommendations? Kudos!

  4. Hi Maura,
    Thank you very much for visiting my blog.Great that you liked the blog and great posting will follow soon.So keep enjoying the the Kenyan birdlife.It is great that you are planning to start your blog, I guess the paid option is better than the free option, although with wordpress.com like the I am using is a good way to start, and you have the option of upgrading it to pro or premium.so at least to can make a decision based on what you thing is best for you.Wish you well with blog development.Regards, Joe
