  6. We absolutely love your blog and find nearly all of your post’s to be precisely what I’m
    looking for. Does one offer guest writers to write content for yourself?
    I wouldn’t mind composing a post or elaborating on a number
    of the subjects you write concerning here. Again, awesome web log!

  7. Please let me know if you’re looking for a writer for your
    blog. You have some really good posts and I feel

    to write some content for your blog in exchange
    for a link back to mine. Please blast me an email if
    interested. Kudos!

  8. Today, I went to the beachfront 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 put 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 completely off
    topic but I had to tell someone!

  16. My coder 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 a number of websites for about a
    year and am worried about switching to another platform.
    I have heard excellent things about blogengine.net.
    Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress content
    into it? Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!
