Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your content seem to be running off the screen in Firefox.

I'm not sure if this is a format issue or something to do
with internet browser compatibility but I thought I'd post to let you
know. The design look great though! Hope you get the issue fixed soon. Thanks

Hey, I think your site might be having browser compatibility
issues. When I look at your blog in Chrome, it looks fine but when opening
in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that,
fantastic blog!
