WordPress is a free platform to use. However, you do need to pay for basic web hosting ( I recommend Hostgators Baby plan for newbies with just one or two sites) appx $10.00/month and a domain, appx $10.00/year
other than that, everything else you need, you can do for free to get started, as long as you are willing to work really hard for the next few months (IE... LIVE EAT AND BREATHE BLOGGING< EVEN WHILE YOU SLEEP!)
There are loads of paid options that will make things easier and better. But there are loads of free tools, plugins, themes, etc...
The thing is that investing some money in your business will make it better.
For example, I suck at graphics. I can do basic work, but they really aren't professional looking. I made loads of banners for my sites over the last few years, and they did okay to get me by. however, I just hired a graphic designer to totally revamp my logos for 10 different sites and create me a custom brandable logo for each project.
Investing in other tools, services, and people who are experts at what they do will save you loads of time, headaches, and even money in the long run. It will also help you make more money faster by giving your site a much more professional feel, building more trust with your target customers.
most newbies get caught up in trying to do everything themselves. in the long run, it will actually cost you less to pay someone who is good at something than to do it for yourself. Nowdays, I am trying to work more and more into being a 'project manager" and working on my business rather than in my business doing all the grunt work.
