  1. Hmm is anyone else having problems with the images on this blog loading?
    I’m trying to figure out if its a problem on my end or if it’s the blog. Any feed-back would be greatly appreciated.

  2. I am really enjoying the theme/design of your site.
    Do you ever run into any browser compatibility
    issues? A small number of my blog audience have complained
    about my website not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Firefox.
    Do you have any recommendations to help fix this
