  1. I would like to thank you for the efforts you have put in writing this site. I’m hoping the same high-grade blog post from you in the upcoming also. In fact your creative writing skills has inspired me to get my own blog now. Really the blogging is spreading its wings rapidly. Your write up is a great example of it.

  2. Heya! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing months of hard work due to no backup. Do you have any methods to protect against hackers?

  3. After I initially commented I seem to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are
    added- checkbox and now whenever a comment is added I receive
    4 emails with the same comment. There has to be a way you can remove me from that
    service? Cheers!

  4. I’m not sure exactly why but this site is loading very slow for me.
    Is anyone else having this problem or is it a problem on my end?
    I’ll check back later and see if the problem still
