Let's say you want to make the small investment in having a self hosted wordpress blog. (wordpress.org)
You can buy a domain for a good price at godaddy.com... in our domain section there is a sticky thread with godaddy coupons for discounts. Be sure to check the last reply in that sticky thread for current coupon's.
You can get some cheap shared hosting at hostgator, bluehost, dreamhost. (I recommend hostgator)
You can find a ton of free themes for your wordpress blog by searching google for "free wordpress themes"
I'd say to start a self hosted wordpress blog, right up front your inital investment will be under $30 in total or less. I'm just tossing out the cheapest things to get your started.
The blog post I wrote about creating your first wordpress blog wouldn't be for you because my inital investment was a lot more. Once you start making a few bucks with your blog, you can upgrade your hosting if you growing out of your hosting package or you can buy a premium theme.
What other tips are you looking for if you was to create a self hosted wordpress blog. I could give more but trying not to toss out idea's that'll cost $$$.
