      Howdy! I realize this is somewhat off-topic however I needed to ask.
      Does managing a well-established website such as yours require a massive
      amount work? I am completely new to running a blog however
      I do write in my journal everyday. I’d like to start a
      blog so I can share my experience and feelings online.

      Please let me know if you have any recommendations or tips for new aspiring bloggers.

        It is time-consuming and takes commitment most days. I would advise creating a content calendar a month ahead of time to make it easier
