  1. 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!
