Hello everyone,

Its probably been said before, but I want to start my blog on Monday when I get some money in.

I want to know what is the overall start up cost including any plugins that are recommended?

I am going to also use HostPresto as my wordpress hosting site. is it also easy to design the website or do you need to know how to code HTML or CSS? or is it a matter of looking at some themes?

Also any help with SEO and driving more clicks would be fabulous.

I have already thought of some good topics

Thanks for any help on this

Regards

Callum

Hi @Calmander

I've covered many of your questions over at Totally Blogging which takes you from setting up your blog through to earning the absolute most you can from it.

In terms of design you don't have to worry. All the templates (there are thousands available) are all drag'n'drop style with maybe a bit of tweaking of the code if that's the way you want to go.

Cost wise, Other than hosting + domain there isn't really a whole lot you NEED to spend. Plugins etc are 99.9% free ;)

Currently being driven mad by Wordpress!!
Amazon just contacted me regarding my seller account... I wasn't aware I still had one as I last used it in 2004!
Can I believe I've actually just bought some proper lights for LEGO animations - a bit of a short sale on Amazon! :D
So Respondent have contacted me to take part in a face to face interview next week.
Excited & should take me over £100 goal for January....
I really should get back into Matched Betting - I'm pretty sure most of what I make goes to Odds Monkey as I don't bother cancelling the subscription - oops!
