    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is needed to get set up?
    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 suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Appreciate it
