    to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get guidance from someone with

  • Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this blog.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very hard to get that “perfect balance” between usability and visual appeal.
    I must say you’ve done a very good job with this. Also, the
    blog loads very fast for me on Internet explorer. Superb
