  1. Hi would you mind stating which blog platform
    you’re working with? I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a hard time choosing
    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 unique. P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!
