    I comment each time I appreciate a post on a blog or I have something to add
    to the discussion. Usually it’s a result of the fire displayed in the post I read. And on this article Email Marketing: The 5 goals of a successful program | MarketingSherpa Blog. I was excited enough to create a thought :-P I actually do have 2 questions for you if you do not mind. Is it simply me or does it appear like a few of these comments come across like they are written by brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are writing on other online social sites, I would like to keep up with everything fresh you have to post. Would you list every one of all your community pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
