  1. Fascinating blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?
    A theme like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make my blog shine.
    Please let me know where you got your design. With thanks

  2. I don’t know if it’s just me or if everybody else experiencing problems
    with your website. It looks like some of
    the written text within your content are running off the screen. Can somebody else please provide
    feedback and let me know if this is happening to them as well?
    This could be a issue with my browser because I’ve had this
    happen before. Thank you
