The costs of a blog like hosting

Bloggers actually only have one big expense and that’s hosting. Of course, you can also start a blog totally for free, but this has a couple of disadvantages. Luckily, I have written a blog post about these disadvantages. Are you hesitating between having a free or self-hosted blog? Then definitely read this article.

The prices of Bluehost are very low. For only 5.30 euros each month you will get reliable hosting with a lot of options. For example, you will get a free SSL certificate, which is really handy!

Costs of a blog > Additional Costs

The costs of hosting are therefore the costs that you really have to make if you want to start a blog. In addition, there are a number of additional costs that you can incur to give your blog a good start.

Costs of a blog > Theme

WordPress has free themes, but I definitely recommend looking at a premium theme. These themes don’t have to be expensive and they also have so many more options than free themes.

These are a couple of websites where you can buy amazing premium themes:

  • Elegant Themes is a website full of amazing themes. If you are looking for an amazing theme, then this website is a real recommendation. Definitely take a look at the Divi theme. That’s the page builder I have used to create this website.
  • Creative Market is a website with a lot of nice themes, but also other things, like pin templates, stock photos and more!
  • MyThemeShop is a website like Creative Market. You can buy themes here for your blog. This webshop just has a lot of beautiful themes for a great price!

The costs of a blog with courses and e-books

Courses and e-books are great ways to learn more about blogging. Of course, you don’t have to outsource money to e-courses and e-books. If you become a member of my newsletter, you will receive the e-book “Become A Blog Boss” + a lot of other freebies completely free!


If I need to recommend one social media scheduler, then I would definitely recommend Tailwind. Tailwind is a program for Pinterest to schedule your pins. I get 80% of my traffic from Pinterest and I earn a lot with Pinterest as well. It is definitely a recommendation to immediately start with Pinterest. To save a lot of time, Tailwind is really a recommendation.
