I need your help.

Yesterday was my one week blog anniversary and so far I am having way too much fun spending time here.
I just found a major issue though with my Blogger account over the weekend. Blogger doesn't provide any technical support, which I also just found out, and this is not something I can fix myself.
The part I'm having a problem with is the "subscription" section, which I will have to remove from this site until I figure out the solution. This is not the best thing to do when you just started a new blog and had a pretty good start. But I hope you understand.
After much thinking this weekend, I wonder if I need to get my own domain name and publish my blog through wordpress.
Here's what I need your help with. I understand I probably need to hire a web designer to design my blog, and get a web host. I found a pre-made template made by this web design company, and they can tweak it to the way I like it. It still costs $500 for the service though, which is pretty steep for us to pay right now.
This is all new to me and I am willing to learn. If any of you could share your experience with publishing through wordpress.org, what you did with your web design, what company you use for a web host etc., I'd really appreciate it. Thank you so much in advance!!
The butternut squash soup I cooked Friday night turned out to be great.
In this recipe, they use both olive oil and butter to saute the vegetables, but I only used olive oil. I like this recipe because you can easily make it into vegan by omitting butter and heavy cream (or use earth balance in place for butter), and it'll still turn out great. Or if you're a butter lover like my husband, you can enhance the flavor of the soup by using a good quality butter.
The key is though, to use just enough amount of broth to cover the vegetables, so it won't be too thick or too thin. I also added two bay leaves to the recipe and it worked fine.
Okay, enough of the soup talk. I hope to come back here tomorrow to write another post to link up to Emily's Tuesdays Unwrapped. We'll see what is going to come out of me this time - stay tuned!
Hope you have a great start to the week!
