  7. Howdy! I realize this is kind of off-topic however I had to ask.
    Does operating a well-established blog such as yours require a large amount of work?
    I’m completely new to running a blog however I do write in my diary everyday. I’d like to start a blog so I can share my personal experience and thoughts online.

    Please let me know if you have any suggestions or
    tips for new aspiring bloggers. Thankyou!
