  2. Howdy! I realize this is sort of off-topic however I had to ask.
    Does running a well-established blog such as yours require a lot of work?
    I’m completely new to writing a blog but I do write in my journal
    every day. I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to share my own experience and thoughts online.

    Please let me know if you have any kind of suggestions or
    tips for new aspiring bloggers. Appreciate it!
