As a blogger, I know how costly blogging can be. Especially if you’re trying to make your blog look professional, or if you’re trying to turn it into a business instead of just a hobby.
There are so many things you need to pay for; hosting, stock photos, courses, social media tools, and more; the list goes on and on. And the cost of all of those things can add up fast – trust me!
