  1. Hey! 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 creating my own but I’m not sure where to start.
    Do you have any tips or suggestions? Appreciate it

    • It’s not hard to start at all. I use WordPress for this blog, and I like it a lot. Blogger is also good, but more limited. I’m not particularly adept at technology either, but I’m not afraid of it and I’m not afraid to experiment. I did this entire page myself, so it can’t be that hard! If I were you, I’d pick either WordPress or Blogger and start up with a free page. Experiment with it a bit and see how it works. You can then figure out what precisely you want to do with it. For example, I use pages here more than the blog function because that’s the easiest way to put things up that people can find easily. Blogging is even easier than using pages. Try it out and see what you can do.
