    Hey, Stanford! Thanks so much for highlighting my blog this week. I’m still working on improving it and I’m thinking about using a new domain name. But I don’t want to rush in to it, so will think it through carefully.
    I recommend all your readers to go for your ‘Spectacular Blog Review’ – it’s made me see my blog for real and to view it like my readers do. I’m so much clearer about where I’m going with it and feel so motivated! Thanks for all your expert advice, all round.
