How Much Does Blogging Really Cost? — Jenny in Neverland

Self hosting, WordPress packages, domain names

This is a big one for when you want to start taking your blog seriously or think about taking your blog to that next level. To turn your hobby blog into a business or an income then you’ll need to be thinking about at least getting your own domain name. And that’s the very least.

I currently pay for the Business package on WordPress, which sets me back around £260 a year. It’s quite a daunting figure to look at but over the course of a year, I think that’s okay. But that’s my personal situation. So using that as a guideline, self hosting, WordPress packages or domain names might set you back between £10 – £260 a year.

The reason I chose this option was simply because I’m not technically minded and I don’t have the skills to go self hosted by myself through an external company. If this is something you’re considering, check out the WordPress plans here or this post by Glow Steady about her switch to Lyrical Host, which is very informative!
