Woah! I'm really enjoying the template/theme of this website.

It's simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's very hard to get that
"perfect balance" between superb usability and visual appeal.
I must say you've done a very good job with this.
Also, the blog loads very fast for me on Opera. Exceptional Blog!

I don't know if it's just me or if perhaps everyone else encountering issues with your blog.
It seems like some of the written text on your
posts are running off the screen. Can somebody else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them too?
This may be a problem with my web browser because I've had
this happen before. Thank you
