These directions apply if you want to create a personal blog which is hosted on someone else’s domain, and that won’t get a lot of traffic, and you want to do this cheaply. Azure has the ability to host websites in a shared model which (at the time of this writing) is around $9.50 a month. If your not sure if this shared plan will suffice for your needs, you can check out https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/pricing/details/app-service/plans/. If there is any doubt though, you probably need something bigger.
