Reading Time: 5 minutes

Could you get the oxymoron part on the title of this post?!

Like I’m actually mentioning two cents, but then my suggestion is not to pay for something. I mean, isn’t it a genius?! #punintended

But anyway, my post today will be back to the dating scheme since I just realized that it’s been awhile since the last time I posted anything related to dating or any beau topic in general. Not gonna blame you though, it’s been months since the last time I went out for a date with some random strangers that I met through a free dating site.

In fact, it’s been awhile since the last time I checked some of dating site accounts that I’ve got on several platforms. But one thing that they’ve got in common: I don’t bother to pay extra for a dating site.

And if I knew it earlier, I’d totally go for the wordpress.org anytime.

Because of this, I had to spend extra in one-year period solely for blogging. And I couldn’t blame anyone but myself. I mean, I’m not really tech-savvy, and I had to do everything all by myself. Too broke to hire an assistant whatever, yet I had to pay extra because of my own mistakes.

But because of the stupid mistakes that I’ve done earlier, now I want to share with you who thinks about starting your own blog with absolutely zero knowledge of WordPress.
