  1. Wow, wonderful blog layout! How long have you been blogging for?

    you make blogging look easy. The overall look of
    your web site is magnificent, let alone the content!

      it’s the first time I decided to blog really, but I am not actually doing so anymore. It just lost its taste and the blog keeps on living for those interested in what I could collect over the year in terms of knowledge.
      I hope it will be useful for you, but in fact it is just a chronological progress chart for me now.

      Thanks for visiting, though.
