  1. Hey 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 difficult 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 unique.
    P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!
