  1. Hmm it appears like your website ate my first
    comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I had written and say, I’m thoroughly
    enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog blogger but
    I’m still new to everything. Do you have any tips and hints for novice blog writers? I’d genuinely appreciate
    it.

  2. Hello! I just found your site: May 2013 when I
    was searching digg.com. It looks as though someone loved your
    blog so much they decided to bookmark it. I’ll surely be coming here more often.

  3. Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a
    sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She
    placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab
    inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to
    go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but
    I had to tell someone!

  4. Hi there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing several
    weeks of hard work due to no back up. Do you have
    any solutions to stop hackers?
