Amazing blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers?

I'm planning to start my own blog soon but I'm a little lost on everything.
Would you propose starting with a free platform like
Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many
options out there that I'm totally overwhelmed .. Any tips? Appreciate it!
