  1. Just found your blog today and I am loving reading the posts but I do have a little suggestion. It would be nice if the links on your page opened to a new window. That way your readers don’t forget to come back to your page to read about the next topic :). That way they don’t have to right click to tell the link to open in a new window . I sometimes get to following links and never make it back to the starting page.
    A normal link looks like this:
    Link Name
    To have the link open in a new window add this:
