  34. I think that everything composed was very reasonable.

    However, think about this, suppose you typed a catchier post title?
    I ain’t saying your content is not solid., but suppose you added something that makes people desire more?

    I mean Mineral Resources & Mining in Sudan – GloMedia is a little boring.
    You might glance at Yahoo’s home page and see how they create news
    titles to get people to click. You might add a
    related video or a related picture or two to get readers excited about what you’ve got to
    say. In my opinion, it would bring your website a little bit more interesting.
