  1. Want to make people visit a blog and don’t know how. Also can you give me a good blogging site that people go to a lot. Do they check out your blog inside the blog site or externally?? Thanks a lot..

  2. The very heart of your writing whilst sounding reasonable in the beginning, did not settle well with me personally after some time. Someplace throughout the sentences you were able to make me a believer unfortunately only for a very short while. I however have got a problem with your jumps in logic and one would do nicely to help fill in all those gaps. If you actually can accomplish that, I could certainly be amazed.

  3. I have Joomla and a Joomla template(rt_refraction_j15) installed on my website. Yet i want the same template and css styling, as a basic CODE template, and so i don’t have to make use of Joomla for editing. Can there be an easy way to convert the template to basic HTML/CSS template?.
