Honestly, comes at a price.
I've put in well over $500 to get this one up and running.
If you're looking for a blog it's pretty cheap to maintain and run and would cost just the monthly hosting expenses.
Unless you're looking for a custom design which will run you a few hundred at least. It's one thing for someone to design something but the coding and programming are tedious work and most that do it do so for a living and would be hard pressed to donate their time.
A true website though (not some wordpress blog) will cost a pretty penny as everything is done from scratch. Unless you find a nice template to run on. You would need some coding experience when creating pages and posts on a website.
I'd suggest Drupal as this is a content manager, similar to wordpress, but also as close to a true website feel you can get with easy to manage blog structure.
I can do a free website. I've made them in the past but I warn you, free comes at a cost. It will be cheap, and I mean that in a bad way. Best to wait on a website until we have a name and funds to do so
