I comment when I appreciate a post on a blog or I
have something to contribute to the conversation. Usually it's triggered by the sincerness displayed in the article I browsed. And on this post "HOLIDAYS in THE PHILIPPINES 2012". I was excited enough to drop a leave a responsea response :-) I do have 2 questions for you if you don't mind.
Could it be simply me or does it look like some of the comments appear like they are written by brain dead individuals?
:-P And, if you are posting on other online social sites, I'd like to keep up with you. Could you list every one of all your shared pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
