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

    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a
    pretty penny? I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100% sure.

    Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Appreciate it
