I’m really enjoying the theme/design of your site. Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility issues? A few of my blog visitors have complained about my website not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Firefox. Do you have any ideas to help fix this problem?
Sorry, I haven’t ever thought to even check web browser compatibility.
OTOH I don’t have anything interesting going on graphically or layout-wise, so I’m probably okay.
This is very interesting, You’re a very skilled blogger. I have joined your rss feed and look forward to seeking more of your wonderful post. Also, I’ve shared your site in my social networks!
I am extremely impressed along with your writing abilities as smartly as with the layout to your weblog. Is this a paid subject or did you modify it your self? Either way keep up the nice high quality writing, it is rare to peer a great weblog like this one nowadays..
Well, thanks 🙂
Yes, this is all me, for better or worse.
At this time it appears like Movable Type is the best blogging platform available right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you’re using on your blog?
No, this is WordPress.
I’ve thought of moving off several times (most recently to Ghost), but haven’t really found a good reason.
Hey There. I found your blog using msn. This is a very well written article. I will make sure to bookmark it and return to read more of your useful info. Thanks for the post. I will definitely return.
Hmm it appears like your website ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I had written and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to everything. Do you have any points for beginner blog writers? I’d certainly appreciate it.
Fantastic website you have here but I was wanting to know if you knew of any community forums that cover the same topics talked about here? I’d really like to be a part of community where I can get suggestions from other knowledgeable people that share the same interest. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Thank you!
Sorry, I don’t know of anything that covers “the same topics”; I suppose there might be some combination of subreddits and facebook-groups that could give you this.
