    Solid article. I’m studying something like this here at University of Maryland. It’s really
    inspiring to learn writing from other writers and see a little
    bit from their source. If it’s okay, I’d seriously appreciate
    it if I might use some of the articles on your blog.
    Naturally, I’ll offer a link to %target_domain% on my blog.
    Thanks for sharing.
