  1. Hey! I know this is kind of off-topic but I needed to ask.
    Does operating a well-established blog like yours require a large amount of
    work? I am completely new to writing a blog but I do write in my diary
    every day. I’d like to start a blog so I
    will be able to share my personal experience and views
    online. Please let me know if you have any kind of recommendations or tips for new aspiring bloggers.

    Appreciate it!

  3. I rarely create remarks, but I looked at a lot of remarks on Is YouTube Down? Yes: 5 Fast Facts You Need to
    Know | HEAVY. I do have a couple of questions for you if you do not mind.

    Is it only me or does it give the impression like a few of these comments come across as if
    they are coming from brain dead people? :-P And, if you are
    writing on other online sites, I’d like to follow you.
    Would you post a list of all of your public sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
