  1. 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 smart so I’m not 100% certain. Any
    recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Many thanks
