Hello, My Charmed Ones!
When I first started my blog I had no idea what I was doing! I didn’t know where to start. I didn’t know the ins and the outs of blogging and how to get started. Let alone what I should actually spend money on. Because you can buy the whole startup of your blog. I chose not to, I wanted to create my own and not have someone else’s hand or touch on it.
The first thing I would suggest you purchase is a domain. So instead of your website being www.domain.blogspot.com or www.domain.wordpress.com it can just be www.domain.com. This is for a lot of reasons I suggest this but, the main one is if you are planning to make money on your blog companies want a professional and not someone that hasn’t invested in their business. You can purchase your domain through a lot of different sites. I used GoDaddy.com.
Next, I would suggest you purchase hosting. One of the main reasons I feel you should purchase hosting because if you are using a free site like blogger all the content you upload to your site, belongs to them. That means any pictures along with your words. I don’t agree with that. Along with you have a lot more control over your site when you have web hosting. I used Bluehost.com.
The third and final thing I think you should spend your hard earned money on right away is a theme. I purchased mine off of Etsy. It makes your site look so professional! Even if you are not a professional!
