    Hi Vineet, I always try to end my posts with questions besides I’m a very curious person. I’m a little shy on the promotion side, always afraid to show my own stuff too often. I may have to do a chart and see if I’m really 80/20 or 95/5 with that one. I like your blog, nice, simple and clean :)

    Usually you can find a ‘What Do You Think…?” Sub-heading
    with a question near the end of the post.

    Also at the end of each post you can find a special Comment Writing Reminder, (Btw. as you can read about in a recent post about Success Journal Notes) and when you actually do write your Comment (or Reply on a Comment from an other Commenter), besides an About the Author Box.

    Now recently you can also see a – Thank You for Your Comments - Message under that Autors Box. to help motivate you to also keep on writing Coments & Replies on other, or new posts in the future.
