  1. With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or
    copyright violation? My blog has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either created myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my permission. Do you know any solutions to help stop content from being ripped off? I’d really
    appreciate it.

    • The only thing I know is to disallow trackback which WordPress automatically rejects typically and asks for approval first.
      If it’s copy/paste not sure from technical point of view what you can do.

  2. I really love your blog.. Pleasant colors & theme. Did you build
    this web site yourself? Please reply back as I’m looking to create my own blog and would like to find out where you got this from
    or exactly what the theme is named. Many thanks!

    • I can’t remember theme name but it’s all standard in WordPress.
