    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 skills so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Right now it sounds like WordPress is the preferred
    blogging platform out there right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you’re using
    on your blog?

    I’m really enjoying the design and layout of your website. It’s a very easy on
    the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me to come here and visit more
    often. Did you hire out a designer to create your theme?

    Fantastic work!

    Your web site appears to be having some compatibilty problems
    in my internet explorer browser. The wording seems to be running off the webpage pretty bad.
    If you would like you can email me at: johnnierhyne@inbox.
    com and I will shoot you over a screenshot of the problem.
