    I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is required to get setup? 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 recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Appreciate it
