    I believe what you posted made a great deal of sense. But, what about this?
    what if you added a little information? I ain’t suggesting your content
    is not good, however what if you added something that grabbed people’s attention? I mean Airtel Celebrates Africa's Outstanding Achievement
    in Film and Television Industry – OfofoZone is a
    little boring. You might glance at Yahoo’s home page and note how they create news titles to grab viewers
    interested. You might try adding a video or a pic or
    two to get readers interested about what you’ve got to say.

    In my opinion, it could make your blog a little livelier.
