    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!

    Anyone knows about the Vills in Trincomalee.

  7. With havin so much content do you ever run into any issues
    of plagorism or copyright violation? My site has a lot of unique content I’ve either authored myself
    or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my agreement.
    Do you know any methods to help stop content from being stolen? I’d genuinely appreciate it.

    1. NextGenReaders

      I have no idea about that but I’m looking forward to that. Thank you

    Hey there would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m planning 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 My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!
