    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting
    my own blog and was curious what all is needed 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% positive.
    Any recommendations or advice would be greatly
    appreciated. Kudos

      There are two things that you have to have. One is the vision – what do you want the thing to be? Is it driving a commercial business? Is it just your own musings on the world? Is it a book that you are writing as a serial novel? Then you have to have time (an ingredient that has escaped me for this entire year…). Once you really start, you need to keep going in order to capture the audiences attention.

      Then look for the tool. WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, Blogger, there are a lot of tools with tons of education attached to them. One thing I would suggest, especially if you are randomly updating, is to get a Twitter ID, and tie publishing media to this ID. This will announce that you have made a post. If you are careful in selecting who you follow, and who follows you, this can broaden your audience greatly, for free.

      Remember, a lot of this stuff is free, has very simple user interfaces, and is easily built to suit your needs.
