  1. Hey there would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a tough
    time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!
