  1. Long time supporter, and thought I’d drop a comment.

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

    I just launched my 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)
    – it’s still in the works.

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

    1. Justin-

      The template is literally called ‘Creativ Singer’. I’m glad you like. I’ll check out your search when I have a second.

      In the meantime, my main blog site http://www.hamedwardakblog.com is much more diversified content. I would love to get your opinion on that one too.
