Lord, you’ve told us to, “Declare your glory and wonders among the nations to all people (Psalm 96:3 NKJV).” Allow wisdom to flow through the words incorporated within my blog site so that your GLORY and WONDERS will be known and adored by all people. Lord, keep my heart, mind, body, and emotions aligned with your WORD. In Jesus name, Amen.

The pros of using Lyrical Host is that you will become a self-hosted site. Being a self-hosted blogger is the best way to eventually monetize your blog. When self-hosted, you own your site and you are not as limited to what you want to do with your blog compared to using free blogging platforms. Your blog should become your own creative space that you can build relationships, plans, and live out visions on.
