    Just a small piece of advice: Use spellcheck man 🙂
    It’s funny cause it’s not even obscure complicated words that are misspelled:

    – Socila
    – Wikepadia
    – Machable

    Cheers, and all the best !

    This design is wicked! You definitely know how to keep a reader
    amused. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well,
    almost…HaHa!) Fantastic job. I really enjoyed what you had to say, and
    more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!
