  1. Hmm it looks like your blog ate my first
    comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say,
    I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to everything.
    Do you have any tips for inexperienced blog writers? I’d certainly appreciate

      Yesterday, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iphone and tested to see if it can survive
      a 40 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple
      ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it
      with someone!

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids.

    I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter
    and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.”
    She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

    1. Heya are using WordPress for your site platform? I’m new to the blog world but I’m trying
      to get started and set up my own. Do you
      require any html coding expertise to make your own blog?

      Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  10. Hey there would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m looking to start my own blog soon but I’m having a hard time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.

    The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and
    I’m looking for something unique.
    P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

    1. With havin so much written content do you ever run into any
      issues of plagorism or copyright infringement?
      My website has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either authored myself or outsourced but
      it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without
      my permission. Do you know any techniques to help prevent
      content from being stolen? I’d certainly appreciate it.

    to in the hunt for more of your excellent post. Also, I have
    shared your web site in my social networks

    1. When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now
      each time a comment is added I get several e-mails
      with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove
      me from that service? Bless you!

      You really make it seem so easy with your
      presentation but I find this matter to be really something that I think I would never understand.

      It seems too complicated and very broad for me.
      I am looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of
