  • could i make money by two cash pages (sure you can, just tell us more about cash pages. I can surely help you)
  • cupcake that cost 1 cent each (Tell where!! Tell me where!! I love cupcakes)
  • how much do you take care of a wife (love the use of ‘a’ here. Umm… not much! Actually she takes care of me)
  • how to destroy right botton of hp laptop (Dude, did you mean a button or bottom? Very simple, ask a toddler! they can break pretty much everything in a laptop)
  • how to make your wife forget ( what exactly? but whatever it is, they usually don’t forget, caution!)
  • i asked him for the increment (and then…?)

    Those are some great stats. Will you be including some financial data in future monthly updates? I am just starting out on a new blog and wonder how much money 73k unique visitors could translate into… Thank you for your time
