  1. Great blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning 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
    options out there that I’m totally confused .. Any ideas? Thanks a lot!
