For those in the internet know....
I want to take my multiple blogs and I want ONE blog. At this point i'm willing to pay also! LOL I want it to be a front page then some side pages. (like my photo of the day page, TTC page, items page, travel info page, etc).
I'm currently using blogger and I don't think it can do that. Plus I want a cool and easy to remember URL. SO where do I need to go and how much is this going to cost me?
I can help you, dear I would highly highly recommend Wordpress. How fancy are you looking to go? With Wordpress you could do a free blog but you won't get a lot more than you do on Blogger. I'd recommend you look into hosting (JustHost.com is what I use - if you want, you can use my affiliate link to help me out ), and then Wordpress itself is free. You can definitely find really great free themes/ styles, or you can look into a premium theme with more features - those usually run $40 or so.
If you want to go the Wordpress route, I can definitely help you figure out your options, just let me know!
Bear with me here I'm NOT computer savy- LOL... So I'm thinking I want it to DO like this blog does (Press) how she has options you click on, and when you do its like its own blog again with topics. So when you click its not just one page its multiple posts on that page. Does that make sense?
So I would have my front page with what ever on it, then you could click on an option that says 365 project (or day in the life of) and when you click on it you see a posts of everyday pics. Then another link would take you to reviews of travel/mom products (yet to be done LOL). And another with posts about just travel sites/descriptions, etc.
Are you with me?! LOL
Also I'm sick of using other people's layouts. I can never find one that I really like or that fits me. I JUST found one I kind of like but the picture's aren't mine and I want them to be mine LOL, Plus the background is boring.
I want to combined these- A Day in the Life of a Globe Trotter Life of a Roadwife Trying to Bring a Dream to Life
And add some also... with the goal to actually make a little bit of money with it (so I would have to clean it up a bit before publishing it. LOL)
so the justhost uses wordpress or they are two different things?! (see what I mean by not computer savy! LOL). I have an idea of my "blog" name if I got to pick! vagabondmom.com (I have already looked and no one has it yet )
Roadwife.com (if you google roadwife i actually am 2 of the first 10 options! LOL)

This functions like what you're talking about with subpages that have different topics, but it also has a bit more of a complex layout.
At any rate, it's totally possible. Local Oranges is a site I custom built for someone, which is probably more money than you want to put in right now. You can get a similar overall layout with one of these "magazine" layout themes:
Again, Wordpress itself is free, so you'd be looking at the cost of the theme plus the cost of your hosting. With these themes, its' all your content (including images), plus you can upload a custom banner on top and often change the background, colors, etc.
