    Thanks, great post. I wish more blog owners will take the time to properly write and review. Thanks again.

    Whats up this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering 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!
