Nice touch Adam
Opening the discussion abt anything have its pros and cons. For me , the pros are there to be discussed and shared, while the cons it is down to personal preference. I have recently get involved with blogspot , I guess u know who introduces me into this. But to be fair it is enlighting coz a number of focus group who looks at the blog gave their 100% support.
Keep it up bro...
