Blogging Basics Review WPWebhost

How Much Does It Cost to Start a Blog?

Ever wonder how much did bloggers & content creators would invest into their blogging journey? Ever label them as “rich” because they seems to have everything from the perfect photo to the perfect life?

I myself believe that, Malaysian bloggers all started small, or perhaps, they all once only use things that already had in hand to start their blogging journey. I was there too! We all started from nothing into something. Second, I believe in Investment. Without proper funding, you are very limited in a lot of aspects.

Let’s dive in to all the investments that I had or would spend in the future! I will also include Substitutes in-case you are considering other alternatives.

Owning your own domain is the most beautiful thing you would experience if you had been using free platforms in the past years! Having a domain makes your blogging turn into a profession within seconds. Clients would love professionals to blog about their services & products! Having a domain will eventually make yourself shine as a professional instead of “just-a-blogger”.

Currently, I am engaging with WPWEBHOST for their WordPress Hosting & a Domain for my blog! Great news, WPWEBHOST is currently running two big promotion in April! Less than MYR 300 & you can already get your own website hosted in WordPress. 

For Malaysians that are interested to get a Blog, WPWEBHOST is actually a good choice because this company is actually from Malaysia, Penang! So if you have any issues, you don’t even need to struggle as much as others that engaged with international hosts.
