  2. Hey! I know this is kind of off-topic however I had to ask.
    Does operating a well-established website like yours take
    a massive amount work? I am completely new to running a blog but I do write
    in my journal daily. I’d like to start a blog so I can share my own experience and thoughts online.

    Please let me know if you have any ideas or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers.
    Appreciate it!

    1. The truth is that it is quite alot of work to set up right, but once that is done, adding blogs is very little work and can be done by almost anyone. Use the internet to find the best themes to use in WordPress for good blog setup. Good luck!
