  1. Fantastic 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 propose 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 suggestions? Thanks a lot!
