    Hmm it seems like your blog ate my first comment
    (it was extremely long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I had written and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I too am an aspiring blog writer but I'm still new to everything.

    Do you have any recommendations for rookie blog writers?
    I'd genuinely appreciate it.

    Hey, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your website in Firefox, it looks fine
    but when opening in Internet Explorer, it
    has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!
    Other then that, very good blog!
