I'd also recommend the web host asmallorange.com - I pay $25 per year for 150 mb of space and 4.5 gb worth of bandwidth. Small, but adequate for my blog - and way cheap. The customer service is good too.

Yeah the key to keeping the cost down is that I don't have a lot of frills and I do it all myself. It was definitely less than the $11 a month you're quoting in cost. It might have been more than $5, I'd have to actually check my records.

Yeah, I just looked, it's like $6.08 a month. If you need some help, send me a PM and we can discuss some more.

Cheers.

That's a nice theme, by the way.

I've done some customization to it, but all with free stuff. Google fonts and the like. Most of the pictures are mine to begin with also. It's really easy to work with, and has a pretty sweet look and feel IMHO. I can also post to it from my tablet or phone, which is a huge plus in my book.

Thanks.

I spent a lot of time searching through themes until I found something that I really liked. That's the great thing about Wordpress - there are so many options!

Mine is also free. I use blogger, but I think Google intends on doing away with it soon.

Mine is www.bear-flavored.com (the name of my "brewery"). I review beers too, so there's more of that than homebrewing stuff so far. Hoping to expand with some more "editorial" type stories about the beer industry / breweries / bars eventually... or whatever else I come up with.
