      Thank you for your feedback. I’m happy to hear that you enjoy my writing.

      The amount of work involved in blogging depends on what your topic is you want to write about, how much time you are willing to put into doing research on your topic and how much time you want to spend writing. The main question you have to ask yourself is how often do I want to blog and is that reasonable in terms of my daily/weekly schedule.

      For more information on blogging, have a look at another post I wrote. Here’s the link: https://africandream01.wordpress.com/2015/09/12/how-do-i-start-a-blog/

  89. I do not drop many responses, but i did a few searching
    and wound up here Christmas and New Year blessings .
    . . | africandream01. And I do have 2 questions for you if it’s allright.

    Could it be just me or does it seem like some of these remarks come across
    like they are written by brain dead individuals? 😛 And,
    if you are posting at additional online sites,
    I’d like to follow anything new you have to post.

    Could you make a list of every one of all your social sites like your
    twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
