  1. Hi there! Quick question that’s entirely off topic. Do you know how
    to make your site mobile friendly? My website looks weird when browsing from my apple iphone.
    I’m trying to find a template or plugin that
    might be able to fix this issue. If you have any recommendations,
    please share. Many thanks!
