    Does anybody know a good website to get my blogs looking really professional?
    If i spend $10 to get a custom domain through Google will i have unlimited bandwidth?
    Is filling 100 blogs with random affiliate product widgets a good idea? LOL

    Not a good idea at all. If you want to make real money, you'll need to host the blogs at your own servers. And of course every blog should have it's own domain. A few blogs per on IP is ok BTW.

    I have always used hostgator and have never had a problem. Customer service is excellent when needed. Baby package at $10 a month offers plenty of bandwidth for now.

    There are many cheap hosting and domain you can try. Use wordpress is better.

    No, stuffing a bunch of affiliate links on your site is not a good idea. You should try to target a specific niche and focus on a few keywords related to that niche. Rome wasn't built in a day, as they say.

    Rome wasn't built in a day but miami was (basically) built overnight haha i hear alot of people talk about focusing on one niche but why can't i just jump in and duplicate say overstock and just make categories like electronics, computers , home. fitness. etc, etc. I am not trying to say you are incorrect i am sure you have more expertise in this area than me im just wondering why not?

    hosting is like a topic on its own you could host 20 blog on the same ip keeping up with 20 is quite hard i think i have 6 and it takes more time then you think. if you want to make your blog look good you could try getting some one to make you a logo be a good starting point. have your face on your blog people will get use to you that way. Dont talk about yourself all the time i made that mstake when i first started blogging

    Buy an unlimited hosting plan to host on, several places like hostmonster offer unlimited for about $5/ month.

    I second the Hostgator suggestions. Best hosting company I've used in terms of ease of use for newbies, price, uptime, and customer service.
