  1. Great blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m hoping to start my own website 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 options out there that I’m completely overwhelmed ..
    Any suggestions? Thanks a lot!

  2. Currently it seems like WordPress is the preferred blogging platform out there right now.
    (from what I’ve read) Is that what you are using on your blog?

  3. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point.
    You definitely know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just
    posting videos to your site when you could be giving
    us something informative to read?
