  1. I know this is off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is needed to get setup? I'm assuming having a blog like your woould cost pretty penny? I'm not very web savvy so I'm not 1000% sure. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Kudos

  2. I think if you can get these companies to other countries who do not have zip codes. Business will increase tremedously.
