Of course, it has an upgraded version, but you can start out free until you learn how to start

Google,s wix.com also offers a free website that you can use if you have a little knowledge about setting up sites.

These are just a few of the free websites I use that I can recommend from experience but I am
sure there are many more.
SETTING YOUR BLOG UP FOR SUCCESS
The first thing you should do is ensure that your blog is properly
configured for success is to make sure you engage your visitors and motivate people into
taking action and subsequently, building an active subscriber base.
Two things you need to pay close attention to are:
1. Making it easy for your blog visitors to find your social media
2. Making it easy for your blog visitors to sign up for your email list.
Remember that once a visitor reads whatever article brought them to your blog,
they will likely never come back unless you keep reminding them that you have
content that is useful and informative.
Social media is a very important component of every online business.
Be sure to place links to your major profiles in your sidebar, top menu bar,
and anywhere else you think people might notice.
Building an email list is more critical than ever, It is vital
in order to build a source of traffic that won’t disappear.
Once they leave your page, you have lost them forever. That’s why it’s so important to capture their email address or persuade them to follow you on social media.
One effective way to build your mailing list is by offering short reports
that focus on a specific topic.
Provide Content That Converts
When creating content for your blog, you want to focus on 2 things:
Every post on your website should do one or both of these things.
If you are writing how-to style posts that provide readers with a step by-
step process to completing a task, or accomplishing a goal, you are
educating. If you write a blog post that offers insight such as a personal
story of success, case studies, or motivational-style posts, you’re
empowering your audience.
Look at other Authority blogs in your niche and look for these things.
• Commonly asked questions posted by your target audience.
• Posts with a high number of comments or likes.
• Posts with the highest number of social shares.
High quality, informative and unique content is the key to your blog’s success.
So, Go ahead and get started on setting up your first site and in my next post I will tell
you how to get started with choosing a Primary and a Secondary traffic method.
