Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words 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 web browser compatibility but I figured
I'd post to let you know. The design look great though!
Hope you get the issue resolved soon. Kudos
