How Much Does Blogging Cost?


How Much Does Blogging Cost?


I've earned my first dollar online with blogging.


So naturally, blogging will always be a viable business strategy to me.


Once something puts money into your bank account, your bound to fall in love with it 😜


What holds people back from starting a blog is usually the costs associated with it


In my opinion, it's ridiculously cheap to run a blog so I don't understand how it can hold people back


But who cares what I think...


Let's talk about how much it costs EXACTLY to run a blog


1. Blog Components:


As you probably know already, a blog is a website.


That means you need:

+ Domain name

+ Web hosting

+ Software


Let's look at each component real quick and I'll tell you how much it costs...


2a. Domain Name:


If the domain name is still available, it usually costs between $10 and $15 per YEAR.


So that's like $1 per month.


Sometimes you can get domain names for even much cheaper than that.


I'll show you where...


2b. Domain Name:


Want a cheap domain name?


Namecheap has a search bar where you can type in any domain name you can think of.


👉 They also offer some of the cheapest prices on domain names



3a. Web Hosting:


Web hosting is the most expensive part of running a blog.


I pay around $10 per month for my web hosting because I have multiple sites (which still costs less than Netflix btw).


But you can get started for as little as $3 if all you want is one single blog.


3b. Web Hosting:


There are numerous web hosting companies out there.


And they're all battling with each other for the lowest price.


👉 I use HostGator.


4a. Software:


You also need a blogging software so that you can create, update, and publish your blog without writing any code.


👉 Luckily, the best blogging software in the world is FREE


That's right, you don't have to pay anything for it


What's this magical software...?


4b. Software:


The best & FREE blogging software is called: Wordpress


Chances are you've already heard of it. I use it on all my blogs & I love how simple it is.

Total $$?


5. Total Costs:


Domain Name: ~$1 per month


Web Hosting: ~$3+ per month


Software: FREE


So you can have a professional blog with your own domain name up and running for not even $5 per month.


I pay around $15 per month with multiple domain names.


Either way, it's cheap!
