  • Long time reader, first time commenter — so, thought I’d drop a comment..

    — and at the same time ask for a favor.

    Your wordpress site is very simplistic – hope you don’t mind me asking
    what theme you’re using? (and don’t mind if I steal it?

    I just launched my small businesses site –also built in wordpress like yours–
    but the theme slows (!) the site down quite a bit.

    In case you have a minute, you can find it by searching for “royal cbd”
    on Google (would appreciate any feedback)

    Keep up the good work– and take care of yourself during the coronavirus scare!
