    Hi. I see that you don’t update your blog too often. I know
    that writing posts is boring and time consuming.
    But did you know that there is a tool that allows you to create new posts using existing content (from article directories or other pages from your niche)?
    And it does it very well. The new posts are unique and pass the copyscape test.
    You should try miftolo’s tools
