Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
The words in your article seem to be running off the screen
in Firefox. I'm not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I figured I'd post to let you know.

The layout look great though! Hope you get the issue solved soon.

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is required to get set up? I'm assuming having
a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I'm not very web savvy so I'm not 100% certain.
Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Kudos
