    Superb blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring writers?

    I’m planning 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 tips? Cheers!
