    Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in
    your post seem to be running off the screen in Chrome. I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know.
    The design and style look great though! Hope you get the
    problem solved soon. Cheers
