    Great blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring
    writers? I’m hoping 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 totally confused .. Any tips? Kudos!
