  1. My programmer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on various websites for about a year and am worried about switching to another platform.

    the layout on your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself?
    Either way keep up the excellent quality writing, it’s rare to see a
    nice blog like this one today.

  5. Definitely believe that which you stated. Your
    favorite reason appeared to be on the net the easiest thing
    to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get irked while people think about worries that they plainly do not know about.
    You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined
    out the whole thing without having side-effects , people could
    take a signal. Will probably be back to get more.
