    Thanks, I’m really interested in the essay, ‘free enterprise…’ any material to read up on it? I personally I’m doing my own research anyway but it would help to work with streamlined materials.
    About blogging, I have a long way between what I want my blog to look like and what it is presently. I therefore I’m not bold to invite my friends yet to see it. Still working on it.

      We all ought to grow and become better everyday, so inviting your friends should not be a bad thing at this point, I think. I’m sure you could make use of some of their advice. Some could even volunteer to guest blog sometimes. You can check out the Africa Liberty website for materials from past essay contests which are similar to this. Do have a lovely day!
