    creating a web 2 blog - zero. creating a self hosted blog couple of $ for a domain and then your hosting cost which could be as little as $20/year - cheaper if you want to go and find the most cheap and cheerful hosting possible.

    The real answer is 0. You can set one up on a free blog site and get going.

    But if you want to start building out something that you can really earn from.

    1. Domain cost avg 10 bucks a year
    2. web hosting avg 5 bucks a month
    3. web site design Free start with a free tempate
    4. content. If you write your own then free. If not avg 5 to 25 bucks an article

    But seriously, it depends on your requirements. How much do a pair of shoes cost?

    As, some of the bhwers has already made good suggestions.

    Let's go more cheaper:
    domain: .info $2
    hosting: $2/month
    wordpress: free
    theme: free
    plugins: free

    It just depends on what you want and what you all do. If you are doing all the work, it will cost you very little but you can add more expenses depending on what sort of content you get, etc.

    This question 'depends' on the intention of the OP - you can get started, of course, on the major free blogging platforms - including WordPress.com. However, the caveat is that if you wish to own your assets, and have complete control and editing freedom you are much better off purchasing a hosting account and loading WordPress (CMS) then building your site from scratch, complete with unique logo, and branding message. This way you can offer advertising, and display good quality products and services you derive an income from -in collecting commissions from sales, plus you can offer services and help to others. Total cost can be from $4 per month, plus of course your time in writing articles, making videos and managing your site. Whichever way you look at it, it is a sweet deal - where else can be commence a business venture for four bucks a month? Cost of domain = from $1 to several hundred but the mean average is $9 for a .com, these days you have a wide choice of TLD's and it is no-longer critical that you have the dot com, things have changed in the online world.

    It's depends on the theme.
    You can get the free theme also.
    Premium themes can be got from low to high.
    Depending on the rate the blog UI and some sort of specification will be included such as responsive and SEO Friendly.
    So it depends on your requiremets .

    Actually, we can do blogging with free or self-hosting. As above members suggest that Blogger or WordPress is best and it's for free.
    If you go for self-hosting, the cost will change for different hosting and domain registrars. Some of the self-hosted domain registrars are Namecheap, Godaddy(best for domain name registering), Siteground etc. Look it up in Google mate.
    the above details give the initial cost for a new blog.

    If you want to make more traffic on your blog, then use some techniques such as link building, social link sharing etc. For that you spend some amount say $20 - 30 average.

    Dude, he was just giving an example. Check the hosting forum here or go to sales thread on Webhostingtalk and you can purchase hosting for damn cheap there. Again cheap might not always be the best but is good for a start. Or go to some website like lowendbox if you are looking for super cheap VPS.

    If you purchase yearly, it would cost lesser compared to monthly.

    What sort of websites do you have? I have tons of reseller accounts. I can help you with something if you wish. However, I would personally recommend a free BlogSpot blog (or WordPress if you do not need ads or Tumblr or Weebly or any other web 2.0) if you do not have any major plans in mind and do not know what to start with. Once your blog is successful enough you can transfer to a proper web hosting or a VPS.

    If its newly created domain, you can get it for just $1 using first time Godaddy Coupon.
    Hosting would cost around $5/month. Go with shared hosting since its just a beginning. You can find other cheaper ones as well.
    For now you can start with the free word press themes.

    If your requirements are high then you need a good budget to create your blog or just if you need to share only for your information then you can possible to create a free blog too. So, It's all about your requirements.
