    Hi there, There's no doubt that your blog could possibly be having browser compatibility problems. Whenever I take a look at your website in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping issues. I simply wanted to give you a quick heads up! Besides that, excellent blog!
