  • Heya this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors
    or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog
    soon but have no coding knowledge so I wanted to get
    guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  • I don’t know if it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else
    experiencing issues with your blog. It looks like some of the text in your content are running
    off the screen. Can someone else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them as well?
    This might be a problem with my browser because I’ve had
    this happen previously. Cheers

  • Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to
    my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.”
    She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic
    but I had to tell someone!
