  1. Do you have a spam problem on this website; I also am
    a blogger, and I was wondering your situation; many of us have created
    some nice procedures and we are looking to trade strategies with others,
    be sure to shoot me an email if interested.

  2. Long time supporter, and thought I’d drop a comment.

    Your wordpress site is very sleek – hope you
    don’t mind me asking what theme you’re using? (and don’t mind
    if I steal it? :P)

    I just launched my site –also built in wordpress like
    yours– but the theme slows (!) the site down quite
    a bit.

    In case you have a minute, you can find it by searching for “royal cbd” on Google (would appreciate any feedback) –
    it’s still in the works.

    Keep up the good work– and hope you all take care
    of yourself during the coronavirus scare!
