No need of design UI skills
You don’t need any UI & UX skills. You can use ready-made themes and templates. You can change it any time or hire someone to create a custom one for you.
Buy a domain
You are starting out. You need a custom .com domain.
Though there are places over the internet where you can get free sub domain which is not suitable for our brand. But you still have choice.
As we are going to create a big brand through our blog, so we are willing to spend $10 to $20 max per year. Not more than that.
I am not someone who suggests very expensive hosting for sake of my affiliate commissions.
You can buy hosting from anywhere on the internet. Hosting is the place where we store our website files.
So we will not go for super cheap hosting. We will buy a hosting plan not more than $10 to $15 per year.

Content writing is the thing you need to do it yourself. Though you can hire writers but doing it yourself will be fun job for you.
