    Hey Alex:

    Great post. You are quite a good writer yourself.

    As you know, I have been a fan of Ali for a while now, having read her posts on several blogs. And I have been one of those regular readers. Ali is a prolific writer and one of the best in the business. Just read some of Ali’s posts…

    Anytime I read a post by Ali, well, let’s just say I feel like leaving a comment. Ali has also earned an English degree from one of the world’s best universities, Cambridge.

    Anybody who is keen on becoming a good writer/blogger/freelancer/entrepreneur/consultant, really ought to seize this opportunity to learn from Ali. Just my humble opinion. Ali has a lot to say and a lot to teach anybody interested in upgrading his/her skills.
