Zoella is a popular fashion, beauty and lifestyle blogger from the UK. To power her successful blog, she uses free software called WordPress.
Although the software is free to download, there are additional costs involved in setting up a blog like Zoella’s.
At the very least you’ll need a domain name and web hosting. Expect to pay anything up to £10 for a .com domain, although you can get them cheaper if you shop around, and some companies offer a free domain for the first year when you buy hosting from them.
Which is the other thing you need to start a blog – web hosting. This is relatively cheap too. A good place to start a blog is Bluehost. If you don’t know anything about web hosting, read our guide “What is Web Hosting? – A Beginner’s Guide“.
