I am really loving the theme/design of your weblog. Do you ever
run into any internet browser compatibility issues? A few of my blog audience have complained about my blog not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great
in Firefox. Do you have any tips to help fix this issue?

Hey would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with?
I’m going to start my own blog soon but I’m having a difficult time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.
P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!
