  1. Having read this I thought it was really enlightening. I appreciate you finding the time and energy to put this content together.
    I once again find myself personally spending way too much time both reading and commenting.
    But so what, it was still worthwhile!

  2. Howdy would you mind letting me know which webhost you’re utilizing?

    I’ve loaded your blog in 3 different browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot quicker then most.

    Can you recommend a good hosting provider at a fair price?
    Kudos, I appreciate it!

  3. Howdy this is kinda of off topic but I was wondering if blogs
    use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise so I wanted to get advice from someone
    with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
