  3. Heya! I realize this is sort of off-topic
    but I had to ask. Does managing a well-established blog like yours take a lot of work?
    I am brand new to operating 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 experience and views online.
    Please let me know if you have any recommendations or tips for brand new aspiring blog
    owners. Thankyou!
