    Hi! I understand this is sort of off-topic but
    I had to ask. Does managing a well-established website such as yours take a lot of work?
    I am completely new to running a blog however I do write
    in my journal everyday. I’d like to start a blog so I can easily share my own experience and views online.
    Please let me know if you have any ideas or tips for brand new aspiring blog owners.

    Appreciate it!
