1) You need a great laptop or desktop. You will be on your computer all the time. I use a Mac for everyday and my Chrome book when I travel.
2) You need a fast internet speed
3) You obviously need a domain name. My blogging tip is for you to buy it through Go Daddy.
4) You will need hosting iPage

iPage is cheap and the service is awesome. You can also host multiple sites on the same host. is fine until your blog gets bigger than I would transfer your blog to Big Scoots. This statement was made prior to me trying iPage until you get several thousand posts you should be fine on iPage.
