Well, and if we look up inside your blog?

There are basically two, yes there are more, but I want to focus on the following:

* And the other inspiration source – it is the cherry of the cake for today: your stats! Yes your statistics deep – inside of your blog or an external source like Google Analytics is the answer. Breath, breath again to meditate and entering in Zen-mood to have full potential to examine the data of your statistics.
