    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is needed to get setup?

    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?

    I’m not very internet smart so I’m not 100% positive. Any recommendations
    or advice would be greatly appreciated. Kudos
