Good start to the series...Hoping to find more useful info. Here are a few of my comments. Please take this if u find them 2 b valid:

1) I personally feel that it would be good to mention sources rather than just mentioning them. It adds credibility to your writing.

2) It would be good to have short and crisp titles. It makes it all the more attractive.
