  1. Very good blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own website soon related with many kind of topics especially “losing weight” but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m completely confused .. Any tips? Thanks a lot!

      Hi – thanks for checking out my blog. In reference to your “losing weight” blog, you could start with the free option but if you can host your own blog through wordpress that would be even better as it then gets credited to your named blog rather than wordpress. If you start with the free one check out http://christinarussell.wordpress.com/ as this a good example of a popular weight loss blog using free templates.
