  13. In this great design of things you actually get a B+ just for hard work. Where you lost us was first in the facts. You know, people say, details make or break the argument.. And it couldn’t be much more true here. Having said that, let me inform you just what exactly did work. The text can be incredibly persuasive and this is most likely why I am making an effort to opine. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. Secondly, although I can see a jumps in reason you make, I am not certain of exactly how you appear to connect the ideas which inturn make the final result. For now I will yield to your position but hope in the near future you actually connect the facts better.

    • So sorry to hear that you are having problems with using your droid to read my web site. I also have droid and it shows perfectly on it – have actually done site modifications with my laptop as well as my droid with no problems. Dr Jill

  15. Hi, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar one and i was just wondering if you get a lot of spam responses? If so how do you prevent it, any plugin or anything you can advise? I get so much lately it’s driving me mad so any help is very much appreciated.

    • It seems like the spammers come and go. The firs thing to do on your WordPress back office is to go to “Settings” then scroll down to “Discussion” Make sure you have it set so NO comment gets posted until you approve it. Under this discussion page you can block certain ip addresses and certain words [for example anything with viagra in subject line]. You will get emails telling you need to moderate some comments. When you go to your back office to moderate comments and see spam – mark it as such. Do check “edit” on even the comments that look good as comments. If there is a web site listed in the body or in the web site address box, remove it then click on update. If you want to reply to it after updating it, just go to it again and click on the reply. What will happen is you will be able to reply to the commenter without giving them a free ride for advertising. Hope this helps.

  16. Hello! I understand this is sort of off-topic but I needed to ask. Does building a well-established blog such as yours require a massive amount work?
