  2. Hiya! I know this is kinda off topic however I'd figured I'd ask.
    Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing a blog article or vice-versa?

    My blog covers a lot of the same topics as yours and I believe we could
    greatly benefit from each other. If you are interested feel
    free to shoot me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from
    you! Fantastic blog by the way!

  4. I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is required to get setup? I'm assuming having a blog like
    yours would cost a pretty penny? I'm not very internet smart so I'm not 100% positive. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

  5. Heya! I realize this is sort of off-topic however I had to ask.
    Does operating a well-established website such as yours take a massive amount work?

    I'm brand new to running a blog but I do write in my journal everyday. I'd like to
    start a blog so I can easily share my experience and views online.
    Please let me know if you have any recommendations or tips
    for new aspiring blog owners. Thankyou!
