  2. Hi there, I do believe your website might be having browser compatibility issues.

    Whenever I take a look at your site in Safari, it looks fine however when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping issues.
    I merely wanted to provide you with a quick heads up!
    Apart from that, fantastic blog!
