    I'm curious about why you have the date shown on your site when it isn't adjusted to the user's timezone. Shows Friday but for me it's Saturday.

    The first article I checked was also about time and I get that you've republished someone's article and given credit but you'd have served your readers better if you'd take the information and then shown how it can actually be used. Most people would read it and be none the wiser.

    I'm guessing that you actually wrote the article on increasing memory size in WordPress but you need to get someone to proof your articles to pick up on little grammar problems - nothing huge, it's still very readable. For that particular article though I'd add in storing the files in dropbox and just linking to them being the easiest way.

    Thanks for your review @sarahk . That post was not a copied content. It was added by another. I am planning to remove that as it is a duplicate one.
    And you recommend me to remove that date from top?

    Yeah, it looks a bit 90s.
    but if you keep it make sure it's right.

    That's cool, and people will look past it if the content is valuable. Just get a friend to read over it - if they aren't techy they might not understand much but they'll pick up on the writing. FWIW my husband has me read all his articles before they go out and there's always something - having English as a first language doesn't exempt you from mistakes.

    Yes, I rather like it. You've integrated your ads well. Well done.

    Check your images and CSS for the smaller screen sizes - see if you can't squeeze it all in a little better. The header and logo I'm refering to specifically.
