You can do a free site and domain just with advertising. The down side is limited bandwidth and options. When you start adding traffic, a custom domain, and merchandise to sell it starts to go up.
If you have a friend with a server and domain sometime you can save money that way. I have a NAS I can actually host a website on but I have leaned how to use the app yet.
I use to know how to build websites but its easier to use a wizzywig like wiz.com or SiteBuilder.com

once upon a time i used wordpress (free)+ CDN (free) + some immensely popular plug-in for Wordpress to reduce load on database, and it worked.As host i used nosupportlinuxhosting.com (12 usd per year)

Also you should do the insta-Face-snap-twit thing.Mostly for posting pictures and short stories,and to drive traffic and look trust worthy.

Wellp, i wouldn't say that Wix is actually that great. I mean it is good, has a lot of features and comfortable to work with, but practice shows that Wordpress is much better platform for business decisions. Besides, Wordpress is a platform that will help you to dive into websites creation pretty easily. The site grows with your skills :) So yeah, i would say that using WP is much more efficient.

While this thread is pretty much dead/complete, I disagree with your analysis of Wordpress. Wordpress can be a great tool, however, you have to have knowledge of what you are doing before just slinging code around or even mashing plugins together.

If you don't know what you are doing with Wordpress, you are going to have a mess on your hands. Both in function and in practice. Don't get me started on potential security problems. In this case, the OP had no experience so WP was probably not the best choice for him/her.
