    Hello would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m having a
    hard time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most
    blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.

    P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!
