  3. I think that everything said was very logical. However,
    consider this, suppose you added a little information? I ain’t
    saying your information is not good, but suppose you added a title to possibly grab a person’s attention?

    Grassroots Education Movement is a little boring. You should look at Yahoo’s home page and watch how they create post titles to
    grab people interested. You might try adding
    a video or a related picture or two to grab readers excited about
    everything’ve got to say. In my opinion, it could make your posts a little livelier.
