  1. The very crux of your writing while sounding reasonable initially, did not really work properly with me after some time. Someplace throughout the paragraphs you actually were able to make me a believer but only for a while. I still have got a problem with your leaps in assumptions and you would do well to fill in all those breaks. When you can accomplish that, I would definitely be fascinated.

    I’m planning to start my own blog in the near future
    but I’m having a tough time deciding 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 completely unique.
    P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

    Is there any way you can remove me from that service?

    Appreciate it!
