Megan - I am looking for a chat widget I can install on my OUTSIDE blog. I have a chat widget on my AR blog but it doesn't translate onto the Outside Blog. The outside blog widget management doesn't have a chat widget that I know of. Any ideas?

Ремонт в квартире застал меня буквально перед новым годом. Сосед залил по неосторожности. Товарищ по работе дал положительный отзыв о дал их телефон 7 (499) 501-99-03 оказалось что это компания Город Мастеров. Там реально работают мастера своего дела, сделали
мне очень быстро и качественно ремонт в квартире. В моём случае мне подфартило, надеюсь так же повезёт и другим.
