      Hi Wendy,
      Thank you for your comments. I am hoping that you will be a frequent visitor at the blog site. Poverty is a problem that has various faces and that touches us all in one way or the other. Thanks again.

  2. Hey! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from an established blog.

    Is it hard to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I
    can figure things out pretty fast. I’m thinking about setting up my own but I’m not sure where to start.

    Do you have any tips or suggestions? Cheers

      Hi Android,
      The fear is real – and it was for me. However, the worst part is not trying to overcome those fears. Don’t worry about failure. We all fail – so that should never deter you!!!

      Setting up your blog technically, is the easy part. (Hire some technical people or a technical provider like a Web Host). You can Google the specific needs areas. There are volumes also you can derive from Google about “how to…” and all that stuff. For me, content and passion with which I write are the tough parts. Once you have those resolved you’ll be fine. I come from the “NIKE” School of thought – JUST DO IT!
      Good Luck!
