    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog 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 web savvy so I’m not 100% positive. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Kudos

      To having a blog is not difficult. There are many blogs that give you an account for free of charge such as (which I am using),,,,, etc (To me, I like What you need to do is that you just go to one of these blog website, and sign up following its instruction, and then you will get a free blog. Finally you can write whatever you want.

      Hope this helps you!

      Good luck,
