First of all I would like to say fantastic blog! I had
a quick question in which I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your mind prior to writing. I've had a difficult
time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out. I do take pleasure in
writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally
lost just trying to figure out how to begin.

Any suggestions or tips? Many thanks!

I tend not to comment, but after browsing some of the responses on this page "Things to do in Grand Rapids".
I do have a couple of questions for you if it's allright. Could it be only me or does it look as if like some of the responses come across like they are coming from brain dead people? :-P And, if you are writing on other sites, I'd like to follow anything new you have
to post. Could you make a list of all of your
shared pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to
make your point. You obviously know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your blog when you could be giving us something informative to read?
