    Superb 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 suggest starting with
    a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option?
    There are so many choices out there that I’m completely confused .. Any ideas? Many thanks!
