  1. Hey! I know this is sort of off-topic however I had to ask.
    Does running a well-established website like yours take
    a massive amount work? I am completely new to blogging but I do write in my
    journal everyday. I’d like to start a blog so I can share
    my own experience and feelings online. Please let me know if you have any ideas or tips for new aspiring bloggers.
    Appreciate it!
