I do have a few questions for you if it’s okay. Is it simply me or do some of the remarks look like they are left by brain dead people? 😛 And, if you are writing at additional sites, I would like to keep up with everything fresh you have to post. Would you post a list of every one of your public sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
