  1. Amazing blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m a little
    lost on everything. Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress or go
    for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m totally overwhelmed
    .. Any recommendations? Thanks!
