First off I would like to say terrific blog! I had a quick question in which I'd like to ask if you don't mind.
I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear
your mind before writing. I have had trouble clearing my mind in getting my ideas out there.
I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally lost
simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints?
Many thanks!

Hello! I know this is somewhat off topic
but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website?
I'm getting tired of Wordpress because I've had issues
with hackers and I'm looking at options for another
platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me
in the direction of a good platform.
