Hi Amy! As a huge admirer of yours, and frequent reader of your many blogs, I wanted to let you know that DIY CANDY glitches on my smartphone for some reason. I want to read it SO BAD without pulling out my laptop. I'm not sure if it happens to anyone else? I use one of the largest smart phones available (Samsung Galaxy Note 2, soon to be a Note 3) on the super fast, Verizon Network. I very rarely have issues with viewing, accessing, lagging or slow loading. Scrolling up or down, images and links change size, and the "next" or "previous" arrows on the picture appear/disappear. When I go to touch a thumbnail it often jumps sizes and I end up touching the wrong link, lol! That's probably the most bothersome part. I'm not sure if this is something you can fix, maybe its due to the size of my screen? or if it happens to anyone else, and possibly on tablets maybe? My phone is the size of a small tablet...but I just wanted to bring it to your attention. I LOVE your blogs, your SO dedicated, and I just want to enjoy them :)

Thanks for listening Amy, Much love! Manda

(Unless you want, its cool if you dont approve my comment as Im not writing to cause any confusion, bring attention to myself or further conversations about it)
