  75. I believe what you said was actually very reasonable. However, think on this, what if you were to create a
    killer post title? I mean, I don’t want to tell you how to
    run your website, however what if you added something that grabbed a person’s attention? I mean Sources – Contested Memories is kinda vanilla.
    You might peek at Yahoo’s front page and note how they create news titles to grab
    people to click. You might try adding a video or a pic or two to get readers interested about what
    you’ve written. Just my opinion, it would bring your
