  1. Fantastic blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m completely confused .. Any ideas? Thanks!

  3. I absolutely love your blog and find many of your post’s to be precisely what I’m looking for. Would you offer guest writers to write content for you personally? I wouldn’t mind producing a post or elaborating on many of the subjects you write regarding here. Again, awesome weblog!
