    Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
    The text in your article seem to be running off the screen in Chrome.
    I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you
    know. The layout look great though! Hope you get the problem fixed soon. Kudos
