    Hey there! Quick question that’s completely off topic. Do you know
    how to make your site mobile friendly? My site looks weird when viewing from my iphone4.
    I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to resolve this problem.

    If you have any suggestions, please share. Appreciate it!

    Hello! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site?

    I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and
    I’m looking at alternatives for another platform.
    I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

    This design is wicked! You obviously know how to keep a reader amused.
    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to
    start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Fantastic job.
    I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.
    Too cool!
