    Thanks so much for putting together this great list. I’m a travel video blogger and sell my video services…believe it or not, many people don’t get how important video is to their success. I think in 5-10 years broadcast networks will become irrelevant.

    Anyhow, thanks again. Cheers, Mike.

    Hi, I think your site could possibly be having internet browser compatibility issues.
    When I take a look at your web site in Safari, it looks fine however, if
    opening in IE, it’s got some overlapping issues. I simply wanted to give you a quick heads up! Besides that, great site!

    Hey! I know this is sort of off-topic however I had to ask.
    Does managing a well-established blog such as yours take a
    large amount of work? I’m brand new to writing a blog however I
    do write in my journal daily. I’d like to start a blog so I can share my personal experience and views online.
    Please let me know if you have any kind of ideas or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers.

    I must say this blog loads a lot quicker then most. Can you
    recommend a good internet hosting provider at
    a fair price? Cheers, I appreciate it!
