Hey there! I know this is kind of off-topic however I needed
to ask. Does managing a well-established blog like yours require
a large amount of work? I’m completely new to running a blog however I do write in my diary on a daily basis. I’d like to
start a blog so I will be able to share my experience and feelings online.
Please let me know if you have any kind of ideas or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers.
Appreciate it!

Not necessarily. The more you put in, the better the site, and the more visitors you’re likely to get. If you’re not bothered about attracting thousands (or more) visitors then you can pretty much use wordpress or blogger as they are. 🙂
