  1. Hey there! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site?
    I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve had problems
    with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform.
    I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good
    platform.

  2. An impressive share! I have just forwarded this onto a co-worker who had been doing a little homework on this.
    And he actually ordered me breakfast due to the fact that I found it for him…
    lol. So allow me to reword this…. Thanks for the meal!!
    But yeah, thanx for spending some time to discuss this subject here on your
    internet site.
