How to start up a blog with minimal costs

Blogs are a wonderful way to drive traffic to your shop or to even just write for others to read! But sometimes, you just don’t want to spend all of that money on them! 



You might be just starting up a shop (if so check out this article!) and are trying to keep costs low or you just want to share your thoughts and don’t want to spend a whole bunch!


Either way, I will share my thoughts on the best way to start up a blog for minimal costs!


First, let me start by saying that I’m not a website builder or an expert in that field in any way! I’m just sharing how I started up my blog for in my opinion a very low cost!


There are so many options to choose from for creating a blog! There are a few well known free options, Wix, Wordpress.com and Blogspot/Blogger. WordPress and Blogspot will both give you options for a free blog using a subdomain, don’t do it! Subdomains look tacky and just make the URL look too long! Yes, you do have to purchase a domain name to not have the tacky subdomain but trust me it’s worth it!


-- If you start a blog with Blogspot/Blogger and purchase a domain through Google, Blogspot will guide you through this, you only have to pay for your domain every year! No other costs! You don’t have to pay for hosting or any of that other stuff and you don’t have to learn anything about web design! It’s a win all around!


I hope that this article has helped you not have to spend a whole bunch of money for your blog, and don’t forget to check out this article on opening an online shop (you’ll get a link for a free startup on Etsy, no listing fees for 40 listings!). Have a wonderful day and make sure to leave a comment letting me know what you think!
