  4. I like reading this site but I can’t get it to load on my phone when I am at work, any ideas on how to fix that?


  5. I’ve learned so much online in the past four years. The majority of my knowledge I attribute to reading great blogs like yours. Thank you!


  6. Hi just thought i would tell you something. This is twice now i’ve landed on your blog in the last 2 days looking for totally unrelated things. Spooky or what?


  7. I’m using Internet Explorer at the moment and your navigation bar looks really screwed up. It might be because I’m using an older version, but I thought you should know. It would be a shame if people couldn’t navigate your site due to it not being compatible with their browsers.


  8. I know this would be better suited to an email, but do you mind if I ask what WordPress theme you’re using for this website? With the right changes (colors, banners, etc.) it would be perfect for my blog.
