Hello! I know this is somewhat off-topic but I had to ask.

Does running a well-established website like yours require
a lot of work? I am completely new to operating
a blog however I do write in my diary daily. I’d like to start a
blog so I will be able to share my own experience and thoughts online.
Please let me know if you have any ideas or tips for brand new aspiring blog owners.
Appreciate it!
