    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting
    my own weblog and was wondering 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 savvy so I’m not 100% certain.
    Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you
