My blog has brought me so much enjoyment and helped me grow as a person, way more than I ever thought it would when I started out. If you have any interest in getting started with your own blog, now is a great time to jump in!

I use WordPress to create my blog,  which is the most common blogging platform. It is software that is totally free to use. However, you do need a service to host your blog, and I have always used Bluehost. I’ve only had positive experiences with their service and it is very affordable. Through the end of May, you can get hosting for as low as $2.95 per month, depending on the length of plan you choose.

The only other thing you need to get started blogging is to register a domain name (e.g. mine is www.thefrugalsouth.com). You also get free domain registration with any of these plans, so there aren’t any hidden fees.

If you have any interest in starting a blog as a hobby or business, I strongly suggest signing up for the 36 month plan at $2.95/month. I WISH I had done this starting out, since I would still be riding that low rate to this day! But instead I chose the 12 month plan and I have paid a higher rate the renew my plan this year. 🙁
