  1. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into
    starting my own blog and was wondering what all is required to get set
    up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100% sure. Any recommendations or advice would be
    greatly appreciated. Thank you 0mniartist asmr
