    Ι ass աell ɑm аn aspiring blog blogger Ƅut I’m still new to eѵerything.
    Dо you havge ɑny recommendations for rookie blog writers?
    І’d rеally appreϲiate it.

    • I’m not even close to being a fundi on blogging. My suggestion would be to Google something like “blogging for newcomers”. Sorry about that.

      • I like to tell people that ask this question, DAMAGE,
        Don’t Ask Me Ask Google Everything.

        Thanks for your superb blog. It’s amazing that Word has been around since 1983, (32 years in 2015) and this isn’t a simple process WTF has Microsoft been doing all these years?
