New MikeShinoda.com changes

January 25, 2010

Hey guys, just wanted to let you know that I’m working on some changes to the site.  As you can see, the videos, photos, and art are not up yet.  The team is working on those.  Also, they are going to change the comments section back to 700 character limit, and limit one comment per person.  As usual, I generally only respond to thoughtful, positive comments, and all spam and negative comments are ignored.  The system isn’t perfect yet, but they’re working on it.

As for me, I’m in the studio today, working on some new lyrics / music.

…And before I go: don’t forget to put the DOWNLOAD TO DONATE widget on your Facebook, blog, or website!  Spread the word, and let’s keep the help flowing to Haiti.

  12. Sintia on January 27, 2010 at 10:08 am

    Cant wait to see the videos, photos, and art finally put back up. I also agree with only one comment per person on each blog. I don’t care to see ppl having conversations in the comment section. That’s why they are so many other places for that. Keep up the hard work in the studio, here on your blog and keep promoting Haiti. I hope you, LP, your families are in great health and doing good. God Bless and take care.

  13. Jo_o8 on January 27, 2010 at 2:18 am

    Mike so good to see you putting a nice big fat border around your replies. It’s so much more easier to spot!

  14. bethanyma on January 26, 2010 at 9:00 pm

    Mike…

  15. SWATI on January 26, 2010 at 8:50 pm

  16. Neil Lawlor on January 26, 2010 at 8:25 pm

  17. Lori on January 26, 2010 at 8:23 pm

    thanx zara, for the play by play, i now have the widget on myspace, and facebook! lots of love!🙂

  18. gleam_summerstein on January 26, 2010 at 5:11 pm

    Ohh.. I always check your blog update with my mobile, so i can’t really see the difference:-/
    Nice to see you’re doing great, Mike! Looking forward for the album! And how about the 8-bit rebellion you promised us?

  19. linda on January 26, 2010 at 4:30 pm

  20. Sarahhhhhh on January 26, 2010 at 2:00 pm

  21. jasmine on January 26, 2010 at 12:53 pm

    hmmm,yeah u should limit 1 person 1 comment!cuz there are some fans who dont have anything to do and write as many unthoughtful comments as they want!actually,i used to write almost 10 comments in a day when it was not limited!haha!=)
    AND 1 REQUEST:yeah,i know that you write something in your own words,but considering the fact that there are many international fans,can you please try to avoid using too difficult words?i mean,if you dont mind ,of course!ı really want to understand your every update but sometımes even i use dictionary i still dont understand!(lost in translation,lyrics in print)
    ı know that its stupid request,but when i dont understand your update ı really hate myself!=(

  22. LíviaPereira on January 26, 2010 at 11:42 am

    YAY! Finaly I could enter your site. I was going crazy ’cause it wasn’t working here.:/

  31. DerekB on January 26, 2010 at 8:04 am

    Mike, just wanted to let you know that you and Linkin Park are my favorite band, and have been for 10 years now and that blows my mind. Without you guys I wouldn’t have gotten into music and my life would have been dramatically different as far as the people I know, the schooling I do, etc. I can’t wait for the new album and I have the highest of hopes and expectations that I’m sure wont be let down by this new album. Keep it up!

    -Derek B

  32. Zermi on January 26, 2010 at 7:59 am

    Good work for the album!

  33. JUJUshelia on January 26, 2010 at 7:44 am

    great new blog!!
    nice to meet you here, mike!!:-D

    have a good day~!

  34. Widya Rahayu on January 26, 2010 at 7:42 am

    Thank you for listening our suggestions about the new site! Can the widget works on deviant art too? About donation..if there’s an auction from LP and the fans, i’d like to donate my heartworks of LP. From the beginning, i just wanted to give them for free to LP. i drew something inspired by Not Alone, it’s on my DA page. a little donation in a drawing..i’m sorry

  35. keineahnung on January 26, 2010 at 7:32 am

    awesome! lol eventhough the fort minor messageboards have been down for quite a while now, I still had the link as my startpage for my internetexplorer (have been too lazy to search for a replacement)…but NOW I clicked the explorer and was like: WTF??? did I type anything in the adress bar?…your team (??) re-linked the fort minor messageboards to the fm/ linkin park page…even if it can’t replace those great messageboards, thumbs up for that one!🙂

  36. Man From Finland on January 26, 2010 at 7:23 am

    More rapping to the new Linkin Park- record!!!!!!!!!!! Linkin Park is nothing without rap. When the record is coming to stores? I will wait it. I am a big fan.

  37. TRT on January 26, 2010 at 7:17 am

    hey,hope you’re fine;
    a question:If I’m willing to learn how to play keyboard, where do I start?
    I don’t really know much about the musical instruments and how they’re played (I just love some of the sounds they make) so any help would be appreciated.

  38. William Lathrop on January 26, 2010 at 7:08 am

    Hey Mike, I like the new layout of the site.

    Last night it dawned on me ( that’s a unintended pun) that I don’t have a collection of LP videos. What would it take to put out a DVD compilation of LP’s music videos? Do you own the perspective rights to those or does WMG? Just curious

  39. lis on January 26, 2010 at 6:46 am

    hi mike ! the link of DTD i put it on my facebook page..like i said that`s all i can do i dont have a credit card😦 i cant help by the the cellphone¿? living here in argentina¿? please tell me how! and i will donate!!! (sorry my bad english)

  40. EvoOba_ on January 26, 2010 at 6:30 am

    Hey Mike! Can’t wait to see the rest of your edits on the site😉 With no doubt it’s the awesomest site ever! I love it🙂 And as “lpfmfan” said the mobile version kicks ass! I’m always online from my IPT🙂

    I’ve a question tho about the comments. Are you gonna add an “edit your comment” button again? Cause it’s really usefull😉 Oh and one more thing:My friend Zahra ishaving trouble leaving a comment. The comments area doesn’t appear for her! What should I tell her to do?

    (sorry for the huge comment)

  41. Xandro Pontillas on January 26, 2010 at 6:12 am

    I am excited to your new webpage!!

  42. Nicholas on January 26, 2010 at 6:09 am

    great!! now we can stop dem spamers🙂 quick question Mike if someone posts a coment you dont like can you delete it?? Would make life easier for those people who post nevative comments to just not comment!! thanks man!! cant wait for the new album and hope you can get the new genre…😀 hsve fun!!and hope you will be able to come to south africa soon🙂

  43. A_Starkson on January 26, 2010 at 5:31 am

    I’ m so glad to hear about the new change of MS.com. Good work, and keep working!

    And then, I’d like to have a question for you, which…really confuse me a lot.
    Personally, I think some of the song like In Between or No Roads Left is great, But seems that if I can hear the song in live, maybe I should go straight for the lottery. So, why don’t you try to sing them on Live? Don’t tell me that you’re a bit shy to do this.

    A.S_

  44. amaterasu on January 26, 2010 at 5:21 am

    It’s great when all people can leave comments now, but it will be easier for spammers😀
    I’ve put the widget on my facebook, and all my friends appreciate it. The album’s just amazing, and Not Alone is the song that i’ve been waiting for so long.
    Hope the new album will be some “blockbuster” in music. Linkin Park is always a awesome park of all rock fans.
    Btw, please be tolerant of my poor english :”>

  45. Terry X on January 26, 2010 at 5:04 am

    I have a question Mike, if I may.
    For the new album, will you and the band be doing the artwork for the album cover? like Hybrid Theory, Meteora and Fort Minor? because I love how the band collaborated in the artwork for the album cover in Meteora. It is my favorite art piece of all time.

    When I listen to the Linkin Park albums from start to finish, I’m amazed how awesome the art is while I read the lyrics. I was a little disappointed when Minutes to Minute didn’t have the artworks, so I was hoping this upcoming album will have something along the lines of the art you and the band put in previously.

    Thank you Mike for the hard work you’ve put in.

  46. orion wong on January 26, 2010 at 4:36 am

    Mike, i wish the album has a song that is about animal, ‘coz i love animal very much, and i hope more ppl to care them(im just suggesting it, i know its rather difficult, anyway). I 100% sure your next album will be very great and unique, i dun mind how long to wait, dun have to hurry =)

  47. BennOda on January 26, 2010 at 4:32 am

    COOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  48. Sofisofi JANUARY on January 26, 2010 at 4:11 am

  52. Dori on January 26, 2010 at 1:28 am

    The widget looks awesome, Mike!

  53. Anaid Clandestine on January 26, 2010 at 1:27 am

    I really appreciate what you’ve done with your band, and I wanna say that even though I hate rap and rappers, you Mike are an exception! You’re amazing, I believe you’re the best rapper in the world and the only one that is pleasant for me to listen to. Your lyrics are so meaningful and you’ve got a good voice – how do you manage to sing so well? Mike you’re genius!

  54. Anaid Clandestine on January 26, 2010 at 1:27 am

    Hi Mike! I’ve just come across your blog. I’m a girl from Ukraine, I’m 24, and I’ve been a fan of LP for many years. In 2002-2005 you were my best friends though you didn’t know that =) I knew all your lyrics, and used to sing along… You helped me in learning English… And then came Minutes To Midnight and it astonished me!

  55. Slayer on January 26, 2010 at 1:10 am

    Gees the new site looks cool! Great Job you guys!
    The new album should make my poor examination-filled year brighter, I really look forward to it.
    Best wishes to you guys!

  56. Parijat Mishra on January 26, 2010 at 12:31 am

    Hi mike…. I am a big fan of your band… let’s hope your new album turns out to be great…

  57. Shannan Alphonso on January 26, 2010 at 12:11 am

    hey mike i like your blog… good to see that its changing for the better… can’t wait for the new album…. please consider coming to INDIA in the future… cheers!

  58. Philan Policar on January 25, 2010 at 11:01 pm

    Hey Mike, I’m putting together a mini studio in my room and am looking for a decent headphone to use as monitors. Any recommendations?

    Thank you🙂

  59. Zara (zara19) on January 25, 2010 at 10:44 pm

    Adding the D2D widget to facebook: click on share on the widget and select facebook, it then takes you to facebook and asks you to log in, then it posts the widget on to your wall. It wont add it to the sidebar or add it to your boxes page or anything like that.

  60. Micosa on January 25, 2010 at 10:21 pm

    Thank you for information Mike cuz I really worried about videos, photos and music that they’re out of your site. download to donate? – yes sir!😉

  61. Illara on January 25, 2010 at 10:21 pm

    sounds great, Mike.
    & awesome updates.🙂

  62. Дмитрий on January 25, 2010 at 10:18 pm

    Спасибо Майк!!!!))))

  63. Zach on January 25, 2010 at 10:04 pm

    I love the new layout Mike! However, how is 8-Bit Rebellion coming along?!

  64. Jace walker on January 25, 2010 at 9:53 pm

    You should give us estimated realease date for the new album! Please! Also more info on the game would be great!

  65. Lori on January 25, 2010 at 9:26 pm

    love the site,
    but quick question,
    i feel dumb, but how do you put the ” Download To Donate” widget on
    facebook.
    im kind of a technology tard!
    thanx!

  66. Eduardo on January 25, 2010 at 9:24 pm

    Hello Mike, I am a mexican fan we hope you visit us soon-In the next record
    i would like to hear something more acoustic more fast more explicit lyrics
    more guitar, bass, piano and dj solo´s and more skills whit instruments- I like the concept of the band, but appreciate that thou shalt take into account my comment
    anyway i love you music – I´m sorry for my english

  67. Devin on January 25, 2010 at 9:20 pm

    Hey Mike, the changes to the site sound great. Also just wanted to say I finally got a pair of your Xander Remix shoes. Those things are beast lol. Keep up the work in the studio. I’m sure whatever you guys make will be awesome.

  68. Ritko on January 25, 2010 at 9:14 pm

    but the game that … Well go on the iphone, it to other phones do not pull? (((

  69. KATHYxx on January 25, 2010 at 8:43 pm

    I know wordpress has a comment filter thing. That’s useful.
    Recreating “membership” accounts would also help cut back on the spamtacular comments. I know Comicpress has an addon for the latter. Not sure for wordpress.

  70. Shadower_liltani on January 25, 2010 at 8:07 pm

    I’ve been looking forward to the new site layout for a while. Also, since you bring up Haiti, and maybe this is farfetched for several people, but, I’ve been trying hard to think of a way that I can help besides just donating (which I already did). Shortly after I began college (which I’m done with now), I really started wanting to adopt. So many Haitian children have been left homeless, without families, and my current goal is to become financially stable, get a car, get my own place, and adopt one of those children, hopefully by the end of this year. Like I said, it may be farfetched to some, but it’s one way to make a difference.

  71. burningdaylight on January 25, 2010 at 8:02 pm

    hey mike! thank GOD you got rid of those spammers…wicked annoying. i’ve been promoting D2D whenever i can, as well as MFR. i also can’t get any widgets to work on facebook, not just the D2D one. the LPN widget hasn’t been working in ages. i think it’s because they moved over to the new format (also wicked annoying). wanna use your shinoda powers to get mark zuckerberg to fix the widgets? ^_^ have fun and say hi to the others for us!

  72. shadowwolfy on January 25, 2010 at 7:53 pm

    Hey Mike! Just out of pure curiosity, why did you guys decide not to perform “No Roads Left” live? I remember you guys said you were considering it and actually practicing the performance, bu it never came to fruition. Thanks!

  73. Maria on January 25, 2010 at 7:47 pm

    everytime i type in your website’s URL, i keep putting mikeshinizzle.com first. hahahaah bad habit or just a funny one?

  74. jason savoie on January 25, 2010 at 7:47 pm

    keep up the good work on making some good music + the new linkin park cd…cant wait to listen to it.

  75. abby on January 25, 2010 at 7:34 pm

    thanks Mike for updating your site.. those who are bitching around are so annoying! your reply to comments are so….awesome!

    @MR HUN and ANDREW: i think widgets cannot be placed in the FB page, only the links.. that’s what i did..🙂

    • M Shinoda on January 25, 2010 at 10:20 pm

      To place the Download To Donate widget in your facebook page, just click on the “share” button at the bottom. Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, Digg, Delicious, and email are all options.

  76. Daniz on January 25, 2010 at 7:27 pm

    Mike!!
    que bueno tener noticias de ti
    estoy muy de acuerdo con tus nuevas restricciones sobre los comentarios
    espero con ansias las nuevas canciones!

  78. beamer87 on January 25, 2010 at 6:46 pm

    Yo Mike, sick site man. Can anyone tell me how I can get the RSS feed working again? Since the new site went up, the RSS feed went down.

  79. Mr. Hun on January 25, 2010 at 6:04 pm

    how do i put the Haiti widget on my facebook page?!?!?!?!?!??!

  80. Andrew on January 25, 2010 at 5:33 pm

    How do I put a widget on my Facebook profile? Can anybody tell me?

  81. RV on January 25, 2010 at 5:25 pm

    (@Pori Pori Bring it on!) I don’t know…explain that to me.

  82. RV on January 25, 2010 at 5:16 pm

    What the hell happen to my comment! I just post it about less than half an hour AND IT’S GONE!

    [.Rv.]

  83. Andrew on January 25, 2010 at 5:10 pm

    So what are you sill doing here?

  84. nico on January 25, 2010 at 5:06 pm

    My iPod Touch is waiting for the 8-bit Rebellion🙂

    I think the game hasn’t been released yet because of Haiti and Download to Donate (and I won’t care waiting whatever it takes just for such a good cause), but could you give us some info?

  85. Colin Reid on January 25, 2010 at 4:49 pm

    YO MIKE. HOPE I GET A 21ST BIRTHDAY SHOUTOUT ON YOUR BLOG TODAY ( =.
    THANKS MAN.

  86. Chmikster_Hahn on January 25, 2010 at 4:49 pm

    Hey again. Having fun? Thanks for keeping us all updated. I’d really like to see some more of your amazing art again soon.

    Livejournal.com is HTML capable, so I’ll be putting the widget on my site profile. … Worked, just as I expected.😀

  87. Andrew on January 25, 2010 at 4:37 pm

    Pori in russian slang means F**k. lol

  88. PinkyLoulou on January 25, 2010 at 4:29 pm

    Dude what the hell? @PORI PORI BRING IT ON!

  89. Andrew on January 25, 2010 at 4:25 pm

    Pori Pori Bring It Down! Shut the hell off!

  90. Lpfan91 on January 25, 2010 at 4:21 pm

    How is the new lyrics and music coming along man?

  91. Andrew on January 25, 2010 at 3:55 pm

    Wow! i really love your decision about “one comment per person” and “no negatives comments”, that’s would be great! so bad that some people use their comments not to thank, ask or say something beautiful, but post same and sensless opinions, and criticism. Previous both Art Shows were prodigious and breathtaking, so what’s up with the next one? I’m sure it’ll be awesome! I really a big fan of your Art, songs are just the words, but your Art is something unique and special, you can enjoy it for hours and it don’t gets boring, the more you look at the picture the more you understand its meaning! It’s genial work Mike! Your art can’t be compared with nobody else!

  92. Elliot aka Mc Eli on January 25, 2010 at 3:48 pm

    Sounds nice! I love the whole green and black layout, very…. what word am i looking for…sleek? haha I was thinking of how you can cut down on spam and off topicness(not a word). What about like a blog post..lets say once every two weeks or so.. Where people can just spam away about any topic and you can can create a response to fans segment off of that. Did you use your new keyboard on Not Alone by any chance? Loved the melody on it. Also, is there going to be any more featured artist posts in the future?

  93. PinkyLoulou on January 25, 2010 at 3:42 pm

    Your responses to comments look classy! But it’s so twitter-ish.😛

    I’m liking this new commenting format!

    So Mike, any chance of completing your new look with a clean shave?😛

  95. LpFizzo on January 25, 2010 at 3:26 pm

    dude thats so cool your actually commenting back to us rather than having to wait on another one of those response to fans post…Im liking the new site layout looks sick also i was wondering if you could consider putting something like a chat room as one of the new features
    thanks!! looking forward to the new stuff!!

  96. Angi L on January 25, 2010 at 3:22 pm

    Mike, I must say the widget does not work on my blog either…..Mine is MSN spaces….But I did add a new post in my bolg which link my friends to Download to Donate…It’s working well, all the viewers can see it, although not so attractive as the widget~ So proud of you~ It’s a brilliant idea~ So proud of us~ We are making it work! Enjoy yourself in the studio~

  97. Umi on January 25, 2010 at 3:17 pm

    *lol* @ photo – not that easy using only one hand, without looking at it, huh?
    Anyways, so far I like the “new” blog🙂 just one question: what about the RSS feed thingy? Will that be back some day? Or is it already back and I’m just blind/confused? o.o

  98. Lnknprkfn92497 on January 25, 2010 at 2:52 pm

    I really like GLXS Dies! Those are really cool! I like ‘The good Life’.

  99. Lnknprkfn92497 on January 25, 2010 at 2:51 pm

    Hi Mike. Im really into linkin park, fort minor, and dead by sunrise but I have a question. Will the album (which was said may be a concept album) be like Tommy or Quadrophenia done by The Who? Will there be a movie published? Also, will you be doing any shows in Philidelphia? We’d really like to see linkin park here! Well anyhow, please write back, and maybe I’ll respond to you on the next post.
    PS: I like the limit!

    Hi mike! I just wanted to let you know that I already put the download to donate widget on my fansite http://phoenix-farrell.org would you take a look at it and maybe comment? I put so much hard work on it and actually Dave never really commented on it! I would appreciate that!

  101. Lpfan91 on January 25, 2010 at 2:37 pm

    Hey mike i read some news earlier this week that you guys are going back to your roots for the next album. Also that you and the band are making the next album where you made HT and meteora. Is this true? cause if it is, thats pretty cool. thanks mike, write back please!

  102. Gloria on January 25, 2010 at 2:36 pm

    can’t wait to see the final look of the website. you should start a countdown before it is absolutely perfect and throw a website party too. this is a very big event since ms.com hasn’t changed its layout in a long time

  103. triplexero on January 25, 2010 at 2:35 pm

    Just wondering if the game is coming out soon, I can’t handle the wait! And thank you for ReTweeting my 8-bit Super Mario pictures on Twitter awhile ago.

  104. Chimera-Syber on January 25, 2010 at 2:25 pm

    Oh, Thanks you for reminding about put the DOWNLOAD TO DONATE widget. I put) Good luck with music and site)

  105. Mr. Linkin Park on January 25, 2010 at 2:24 pm

    Hey Mike, one of your biggest fans here.
    Just wanted to know how things are going with you and the Download To Donate project. I know it’s a struggle to get people to get off their asses and vote, but i’m one of the few people trying to really support you on this.
    I put a link on my Jamglue account for people who wanna donate, but most people on Jamglue only care about hearing the music though, so…
    Anywayz though, i’m just gonna keep pushing people to donate as much as I can, i hope you can raise as much as you aim for with DTD.
    Btw, what’s your Twitter?
    I looked for you, but i can’t find you.
    Please get back to me when you get this comment, and i appreciate your time. Peace.

  106. Colin Reid on January 25, 2010 at 2:24 pm

    HEY MIKE. WAS JUST WONDERING IF YOUR STILL CONSIDERING UPLOADING YOUR 8 SHORT TRACKS THAT YOU DID DURING THE VMAS IN 2005 FOR US ( =.

    THANK YOU!

  107. Oberamukamanabushha on January 25, 2010 at 2:18 pm

    Wow..2 years already past just for waiting lp

  108. TerryBolger on January 25, 2010 at 2:14 pm

    Good luck, Mike))
    well, don’t u think that auction selling of some LP (and other artists’) stuff and so on could help Donate project as well as music?
    i wish there was a FM song on the Donate album))

  109. ChesterDEAN on January 25, 2010 at 2:11 pm

    I’m just happy that now it’s easier to comment without the need to login a thousand times. Good job with the site, it looks great🙂

  111. Raiden on January 25, 2010 at 1:55 pm

    Thank you Mike for keep us up to date. Hope the new album will be another “dimension” like 30 Seconds to Mars – This is War album. By the way…what about the LP 8-bit iPhone game? Can you tell us a release date?

  112. Derek on January 25, 2010 at 1:46 pm

  114. Reenzy on January 25, 2010 at 1:21 pm

    Hey Mike! I got an email from the Network but i didnt get the widget’s code. Btw, I use the CD’s cover as my icon on MSN and I’ve shared the links.. I wish I could do more, but I can’t =/ Music for Relief is a wonderful thing, I’m really proud of being even a very very very tiny part of it =) Can’t wait for the album.. any ideas about the release’s date? And everyone knows you are workaholic, so thats not new you are in the studio =P =) Love you for it and many other things but I dont wanna use all my characters..😀 I have 170 left.. woo :DDD (145)

  115. rockstarme on January 25, 2010 at 1:15 pm

    Hey, Mike. We’re having trouble getting people to pay attention to this, so any help would be appreciated.

    In San Diego at the beginning of March, a few friends and I are doing a bake sale for Music for Relief in which all the funds will be sent directly to Whitney for Haiti’s relief. We want it to be a success, but we can’t guarantee that without ample advertisement for the event. We are having trouble getting Whitney to pay attention to the emails and posts about it. Can you help us? Please? Thanks.

    PS: Comments seem to suck on my computer. They never show up to show me that I’ve posted mine.

  116. lpfmfan on January 25, 2010 at 1:06 pm

    Yay! I put the widget as many places I could think of! Btw, again, THANK YOU for the mobile version. I’m so happy with it😀 plus I’ll be using this plug-in later, can’t wait.🙂

    • M Shinoda on January 25, 2010 at 2:57 pm

      I like the mobile version too.

  117. In The End on January 25, 2010 at 1:05 pm

    How many songs are fully completed? Is there going to be any rapping from you in this album or is the album all going to be like “Not Alone” where there is only singing? Have you decided what the name of the album is going to be named?

  118. Jackie on January 25, 2010 at 1:03 pm

    Cool changes! I spread the word about D2D and listen to the album every day, the music is so amazing, every song! to be honest i thought i’d listen only to lp but was greatly surprised❤
    and we all are wondering when 8-bit game comes out?

  119. Fatima on January 25, 2010 at 1:01 pm

    oh that’s good! good luck guys😉
    and good luck to u Mike in the studio😀

    have a great day!

  120. Atlantis on January 25, 2010 at 12:59 pm

    This new version about your blog is amazing. Good job to your team.
    Of course i’m happy to know that you work on your studio. And for last, i just want to say that i’m very proud of all the Music for relief’s team, for the good job on “Donald an Donate for Haïti”. Have a good day. Agathe a french fan😉

  121. Parker on January 25, 2010 at 12:58 pm

    the html code of the Download To Donate widget doesn’t work on my blog. anyone can help me?

    on Sparkart the limit of one comment per person didn’t really work because I was able to add more comments than one. just letting you know ;]

    • M Shinoda on January 25, 2010 at 2:54 pm

      Doesn’t work on your blog? What kind of blog do you have (WordPress, Blogger, other)? Respond in an edit to your original comment if you can🙂 (not sure if my comments allow this)

  122. MARI_SABEL on January 25, 2010 at 12:55 pm
