    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.

      Thanks for the comment! I do get spams from time to time but they are manageable for now.

    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!

    Awesome blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?
    A design like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make my blog jump
    out. Please let me know where you got your theme. With
    thanks

      Thanks for the comment! The theme I’m using for this site is “Twenty Fifteen”.

    I’m really enjoying the design and layout of your site.

    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 developer to create
    your theme? Superb work!

      Thanks Matt! This is actually a free theme called “Twenty Fifteen”. I believe it’s built by the WordPress team.

  5. Hi there would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m planning to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a tough time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design and style seems
    different then most blogs and I’m looking for something
    completely unique. P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to
    ask!
