  1. Oh thanks God there is no Pakistan. Suicide is bad thing and we should try to avoid it whatever the circumstances. Suicide is not a way to get rid off from your difficulties.

  2. Well, I wanted to write to now. I’ve been following your blog for the last one year. But I see posts such as this not meeting the blog title – Smart Earning Methods.

    I would not follow this blog, as long as you are confined to Smart Earning Methods. I’ve seen over past one month, the content is no way relevant to the niche.

    I guess people like me would just unsubscribe from the blog, if the same continues
