  1. Hi! I know this is kind of off-topic however I had to ask. Does operating a well-established
    blog like yours take a massive amount work? I’m completely new to writing a blog
    but I do write in my diary on a daily basis.
    I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to share my personal experience and views online.
    Please let me know if you have any kind of suggestions
    or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers. Appreciate it!

    • WordPress and Blogger are best.
      No coding is required.
      If you have written your diary in MS office word, pdf or any digital writing source then you just need to copy paste your content in website.

      No hard work needed.

      So, start your work and best of luck.
