  2. Hi there would you mind stating which blog platform you're working with?
    I'm going to start my own blog soon but I'm having a tough time making a decision 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 completely unique.
    P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
