I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your

But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so
people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two
images. Maybe you could space it out better?

Greetings! Quick question that's completely off topic. Do you know how
to make your site mobile friendly? My blog looks weird when viewing from my iphone.

I'm trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to fix this
problem. If you have any recommendations, please share.
Many thanks!
