  1. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.

    I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have
    some experience with something like this. Please
    let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and
    I look forward to your new updates.

  2. An interesting discussion is worth comment. I believe that you need to write more about this issue,
    it may not be a taboo matter but typically people do
    not speak about these topics. To the next! All the best!!
