Very good 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 suggest starting with a free platform like

Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I'm completely

overwhelmed .. Any ideas? Thanks!
