    I believe everything wrote was very logical. But, what about
    this? suppose you added a little information? I am not suggesting your information isn’t good,
    however what if you added something that makes people want more?
    I mean Balsamic Bruschetta: A Crowd Pleasing Favorite In Under 10 Minutes – is a little plain.
    You might peek at Yahoo’s home page and see how they create article titles to get
    people to click. You might add a video or a related picture

    Just my opinion, it would bring your blog a little
