    You’ve nice layout/design and graphics, by the way. I like it!

    • I love that! A compelling purpose makes all the difference. So true!
      Thanks for adding to the post.

      And I’m so glad you like the graphics – (I design them all myself). I’m actually getting ready to launch a tutorial site in a couple weeks ( teaching fellow bloggers how they can make their own graphics. So be sure to check back soon 😉

      • Tutorial site? Cool! Will be sure to check it out.

        May I ask which plugin you use for the 3 in 1 widget recent-comments-tag? I was searching for something similar for recent-popular-comments.

        • It’s actually a built in part of the theme I use. It’s called standard theme. You can check it out here I’m sure there might be a plugin out there as well that has similar functions. If I come across one I’ll be sure to let you know.
