  1. Howdy! Quick question that’s totally off topic. Do
    you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My blog looks weird when browsing from my iphone4.
    I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able
    to fix this issue. If you have any suggestions,
    please share. Appreciate it!
