- Register with a blogging website such as blogger.com, wordpress.com, etc…
- Start your own website with your own domain name!
Free vs Paid
You can get started with blogging websites free of charge. Some websites may place advertising on your blog, may charge you for additional storage space, or have other upgrade options. For the most part, getting started is always free.
There are initial costs to starting a blog with your own domain name and web hosting. You can register your domain name with Godaddy.com for around $9.99 per year. GoDaddy also offers hosting packages starting at $4.99 per month. I’m using Dreamhost.com now for hosting and it’s $8.95 a month with a 2 week free trial with unlimited storage space and bandwidth, the amount of data transfer per month.
