  1. Hi there! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from an established blog.

    Is it very difficult to set up your own blog? I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I'm thinking about setting up my own but I'm not sure where to begin. Do you have any ideas or suggestions? Many thanks
