    Awesome blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring
    writers? I’m planning to start my own site
    soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you advise 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 suggestions? Many thanks!
