  1. Howdy this is somewhat of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or
    if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but
    have no coding know-how so I wanted to get
    advice from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  2. Long time reader, first time commenter — so, thought I’d drop a comment..
    — and at the same time ask for a favor.

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

    I just launched my small businesses 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)

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


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

  4. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could
    add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
    I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping
    maybe you would have some experience with something like this.
    Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.
