    I am in the process of redoing my website. I live in the San Diego area. I love the idea of slow reading and would like to apply for a host in my area. If there is any other information you can send till I get my website finished and a place to meet I would appreciate it. Thank you for any assistance you will give.

    Hi would you mind letting me know which webhost you’re working with? I’ve loaded your blog in 3 different web browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot quicker then most. Can you suggest a good web hosting provider at a honest price? Kudos, I appreciate it!
