Wonderful 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 recommend starting with a free platform like WordPress or
go for a paid option?
There are so many choices out there that
I'm completely confused ..
Any recommendations ? Many thanks!
