  1. Hey there! I understand this is sort of off-topic but I needed to ask.
    Does managing a well-established blog such as yours require a
    massive amount work? I’m brand new to operating a blog but I do write in my diary everyday. I’d like to start a blog so I can easily share my own experience and thoughts online.

    Please let me know if you have any kind of
    ideas or tips for new aspiring bloggers. Thankyou!

    • Hi, nice to hear from you. The key thing is to blog everything. It is never to much. Stick to your chosen content type and link all your online networks together where relevant and blog as much as possible. Make it easier to suceed by installing apps to blog on all your devices. Rgds Sawan

  2. Hi! Quick question that’s completely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My weblog looks weird when viewing from my iphone. I’m trying to
    find a theme or plugin that might be able to fix this issue.
    If you have any suggestions, please share.
    Appreciate it!
