  6. Your blog is really cool to me and your subject matter is very relevant. I was browsing around and came across something you might find interesting. I was guilty of 3 of them with my sites. “99% of website managers are doing these five mistakes”. http://is.gd/HWKqeJ You will be suprised how fast they are to fix.
