I'm going to start my own blog soon but I'm having a difficult time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something completely unique. P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
