    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% positive.
    Any recommendations or advice would bbe greatly appreciated.
    Thanks
