    what if you added a title that grabbed a person’s attention? I mean Baldness Treatment Shows Promise | Drppanda’s Blog is a little plain.
    You should glance at Yahoo’s front page and note how they create news headlines to grab people to open the links. You might try adding a video or a related picture or two to grab people interested about everything’ve written.
    Just my opinion, it would bring your website a little livelier.
