I believe what you published was actually very logical.
But, what about this? suppose you composed a catchier post title?
I ain't suggesting your content isn't good, however suppose you added a title to possibly grab a
person's attention? I mean "World's Top 10 Largest Shopping Malls 2008" is kinda boring. You should peek at Yahoo's home page and note how they create article titles to grab people interested. You might add a related video or a picture or two to get people interested about what you've got to say. Just my opinion, it might bring your blog a little livelier.
