      I have been using wordpress. I am not sure it is any more risk free though.I have heard from others who complained they had been badly hacked. I do not have any great suggestions re security.

    I was wondering if you ever considered changing the structure of your site?

    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

      I agree with you. It could be much better designed. I will talk to my son about it. He could help me with that.
