    Superb blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything.

    Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many
    choices out there that I’m totally overwhelmed .. Any recommendations?

    Thank you!
