I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering
what all is needed to get setup? I'm assuming
having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?

I'm not very internet smart so I'm not 100% sure.
Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks

Hey would you mind sharing which blog platform you're working with?
I'm going to start my own blog soon but I'm having a hard time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and
Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems
different then most blogs and I'm looking for
something unique. P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

I was curious if you ever considered changing the page layout of your blog?

Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But
maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with
it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1
or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?
