Personally, I would call GoDaddy and see what they can do for you. They are pretty reasonable and my brother uses them for his business website, which he edits and designs using iWeb. He's really happy with it.64GB iPhone 6, 64GB iPad Air 2.
Reminder: Please include your Mac's specs. This will make it much easier for the other members to assist you.

You can host it yourself (I host my own website) but unless you're comfortable managing and fixing any issues that come with doing so, I would suggest that you look at hosting plans.
I only suggest this because, aside from maintenance, there is much more to hosting than many people may believe. Setting up a blog for instance requires that you're comfortable with databases (likely MySQL or PostgreSQL) and setting up a working web server with appropriate language support. It's not really hard but if you don't know what you're doing, things can get complicated and overwhelming quite quickly.
