  10. Hi! I understand this is kind of off-topic however I needed to ask.
    Does operating a well-established blog such as yours take
    a massive amount work? I'm brand new to operating a blog
    however I do write in my journal daily. I'd like to
    start a blog so I can easily share my experience and thoughts online.

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