  1. Hey there this is kinda of off topic but I was wanting
    to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.

    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding knowledge so I wanted to
    get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  5. Greetings! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering
    which blog platform are you using for this website (Marcelo)?

    I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve had problems with

    I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of
    a good platform.
