    Whenever I look at your blog in Safari, it looks fine however, when opening in I.E.,
    it has some overlapping issues. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!

    Apart from that, fantastic site!

    My blog has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either created myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my agreement.

    Do you know any ways to help reduce content from being ripped off?
    I’d genuinely appreciate it.

    1. I am not sure how to stop people from copying sorry. For me if I ever use other quotes I cite the source and link at the end of the article. If you want there might be some code you can add to have a copyright. I believe you can google to find what you need.

  19. Nice blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere? A theme like yours with a few simple adjustments would really make my blog shine. Please let me know where you got your design. Thanks

  20. Hey there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended
    up losing several weeks of hard work due
    to no back up. Do you have any methods to prevent hackers?

  21. I think that everything published was very reasonable.
    But, what about this? suppose you were to create a killer
    title? I ain’t saying your content isn’t good,
    however suppose you added a title that grabbed folk’s
    attention? I mean Symptoms Of S.A.D – Melatonin is kinda vanilla.
    You might glance at Yahoo’s home page and see how they write
    post headlines to grab viewers to open the
    links. You might add a related video or a pic or two
    to grab readers interested about what you’ve got to say.
    Just my opinion, it would make your posts a little catchier.

    job. I really enjoyed what you had to say,
    and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!

  24. I’m curious to find out what blog system you happen to be working with?
    I’m experiencing some small security issues with my latest blog and I’d like to find something more safe.
    Do you have any solutions?

  25. Wow! This blog looks exactly like my old one!
    It’s on a completely different topic but it has pretty much the
    same page layout and design. Wonderful choice of colors!

  26. Having read this I thought it was extremely enlightening. I appreciate you taking the time and effort to put this information together.
    I once again find myself spending way too much time
    both reading and commenting. But so what, it was still worthwhile!

  27. I was just seeking this info for some time. After six hours of continuous Googleing, at last I got it in your site. I wonder what’s the lack of Google strategy that don’t rank this type of informative sites in top of the list. Usually the top websites are full of garbage.
