    Excellent blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers?

    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything.

    Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a
    paid option? There arre so many choices out there that I’m completely overwhelmed ..
    Any suggestions? Kudos!

    Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iPad and tested to see if it can survive a 30
    foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple
    ipad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this
    is totally off topic but I had to share it
    with someone!
