  1. I do not leave a lot of responses, however i did some
    searching and wound up here Tag Post | Musings of an Idle Brain.
    And I do have some questions for you if you don’t mind.

    Could it be just me or does it appear like a few of these comments appear
    like they are left by brain dead visitors?
    😛 And, if you are writing at additional online social
    sites, I would like to follow everything new
    you have to post. Would you make a list of all of your
    public pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
