    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my
    own weblog and was curious what all is required to get set up?
    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 tips or advice would
    be greatly appreciated. Thank you
