WHY I SPEND $1,426 MONTHLY ON BLOGGING EXPENSES | How much does it cost to start a blog?

How much should you spend on blogging? It depends massively on what stage you’re in.

Beginner blogger? It costs between $0-$5 to start a blog. DO NOT SPEND MORE. This video shows you how to start blogging without needing to spend more than $5 per month as a MAXIMUM.

Growing blogger? Maybe a little more – consider investing $300 in your blogging business.

Professional blogger? This depends 100% on what kind of blogger you are, but I can share my own expenses so you can get an idea.
