understand what blog is?
A blog is short for "weblog". A technology that allows you to post your thoughts, ideas, images, videos, emotions, rants, raves and more with just a few clicks. Indeed it is the onslaught of the blog that has heralded the new age of Web 2.0
But, even if the software technology is new, it is still dependent on the age old hardware technology of web hosting. If only that was not the case.
Accepting reality and moving ahead let us see what is needed from a web host for hosting a blog. Well, mainly the requirements for hosting a blog are similar to those required for hosting a web site. The disk space, bandwidth, and speed will make all the difference. Naturally, price will be a consideration too.
But other than the usual, there are some special considerations for blogs. For one, the hosting provider should allow the use of databases. Additionally, it would be great if there was a script that the hosting service provided that would install the blog for you. Of course, if you are technically qualified this may not help much. But, if you are a newbie, you want to stay away from all that jazz and simply focus on reaching out to your readers.
i never use own hosting for my blog. Since my blog is not popular yet, and the traffic is not too many, so i'm satisfied with bandwitch from blogspot.
I think it's that attitude that's going to stop your blog from growing. I mean, if you can't invest $20 on a domain and some hosting, then you're unlikely to ever make it online. Whilst a blogspot domain does have it's good points (mainly because it's free), it will never rival having your own domain and hosting.

ok, i'm start thinking to use own domain and hosting. But i will do it only for some of my blog which related to money making program, not for my life-story blog. I should planning to make this investment worth, because this invrstment need about $20-$30 extra budget/month

Shoban, that is a nice statement, but what do you want us to say apart from 'yes/no/maybe'? It just looks as if you copied and paste something and made a thread (with a poll) from it.
