  1. Hi! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from an established blog.
    Is it tough to set up your own blog? I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast.
    I'm thinking about making my own but I'm not sure where to begin. Do you have any tips or
    suggestions? Many thanks

    1. Howdy! You can look at the top in my writing, editing, formatting and other tips section. I have a whole series of posts on how to start a blog. Thanks for the comment, and good luck!
