  1. Hi there! I’m at work browsing your blog from my new iphone 4!

    Just wanted to say I love reading your blog and look forward to all your posts!
    Carry on the superb work!

  2. Long time supporter, and thought I’d drop a comment.

    Your wordpress site is very sleek – hope you don’t
    mind me asking what theme you’re using? (and don’t mind
    if I steal it? :P)

    I just launched my site –also built in wordpress
    like yours– but the theme slows (!) the site down quite a bit.

    In case you have a minute, you can find it by searching for “royal cbd”
    on Google (would appreciate any feedback) – it’s still in the works.

    Keep up the good work– and hope you all take care of yourself during
    the coronavirus scare!
