If you do plan to set up your own blog, I would appreciate it if you would use one of these companies as your web host. It doesn’t cost you any more to use one of these links.


Bluehost.com Web Hosting $6.95
Blue Host. This is the company I use myself and I’ve had a great experience with them. They are available 24/7 and I’ve never waited more than a few minutes to speak with anyone in technical support. They have been a great host. You can add unlimited domains (if you want more than one blog or site) and hosting with them costs as low as $6.95 per month! I have several other online ventures I’m considering and it’s nice to know that I can host them all on my current account. Additionally, they have a one click install of WordPress as well as several other programs through Fantastico Deluxe. Use it. It works like a dream.

Host Gator (for all you University of Florida fans!). Host Gator doesn’t require customers to sign up for anything longer than a month plus they have no setup fees. If you’re wanting to get your feet wet (pun intended) you can use their “Hatchling,” “Baby,” or “Swamp” plans. They have a lot of different options so I haven’t included any pricing here to avoid any confusion. Host Gator is a very reliable web host that many online friends use with great success.
