  1. I do not know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everybody else experiencing issues with your site.
    It appears like some of the text in your posts are running off the screen. Can someone else please provide feedback and
    let me know if this is happening to them as well? This may be a problem with my web browser because I’ve
    had this happen previously. Cheers

  2. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the structure of your website?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a
    little more in the way of content so people could connect with
    it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only
    having 1 or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?
