    1. Hi, I’m always looking to improve so what you see here will probably change in the near future. Feel free to get ideas if it helps you and your business. Best of luck to you.

  1. Nice blog here! Also your web site loads up very fast! What host
    are you using? Can I get your affiliate link to your host?
    I wish my web site loaded up as quickly as yours lol

  2. Greetings! This is my 1st comment here so I just wanted to give a quick shout out and
    say I genuinely enjoy reading your posts. Can you suggest any other blogs/websites/forums that deal with the same topics?

    Thank you so much!

  3. When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I
    get three e-mails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
    Appreciate it!

    1. I didn’t know that happened and I apologize. We’ll look into that and make changes.

      Thank you for letting us know.

  4. Hello! This is my first visit to your blog! We are a collection of volunteers and starting a new initiative in a community
    in the same niche. Your blog provided us useful information to work on. You have done a extraordinary job!

  5. Hey! This post could not be written any better! Reading through this post reminds me
    of my old room mate! He always kept chatting about this.
    I will forward this write-up to him. Pretty sure he will have a good
    read. Thanks for sharing!

  6. That is a very good tip particularly to those new to the blogosphere.

    Short but very accurate info… Many thanks for sharing this
    one. A must read post!

  7. Greetings from Colorado! I’m bored to death at work so I decided
    to check out your website on my iphone during lunch break.
    I really like the information you present here and can’t wait to take a look when I
    get home. I’m amazed at how fast your blog loaded on my phone
    .. I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyways, very good blog!

      Thanks for the feedback

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

    1. Thank you for the feedback. I did not hire a UX designer, although I probably should have to make the site pop more than it does.

      Cheers, and appreciate the kind words
