Blogging – Legally?

How Legal Do we Need to be as Blogger?

What Legal bits do we need to know?

Do we have to follow anything?

I like most other bloggers I  am a self-taught blogger.   Looking here and looking there for ideas and advice.  I feel here in the UK there isn’t a lot of advice, or it could be that I am looking in the wrong place.

In all honesty,  I am clueless and this post is a discussion post for all us bloggers to share our advice and learnings with one another.  That way we all grow together and are safe online whilst blogging.    Apparently, if we are not careful we can lose a lot!

However,  in my travels of trying out to find out what one should be doing as a blogger to be legal.I have come across a few articles – URL links below for you all.   One is a bit old and one is newer.

I also include my learnings

  1. Disclaimer Statement
  2.   Disclosure statement
  3. If you have a MailChimp – you have to have a PO BOX and some sort of data protection statement.
  4. Must copyright your work
  5. FTC has international jurisdiction

Friends,  please do comment below.  What are your thoughts or concerns?  Maybe we can all help each other learn.  Or it might be you all know everything and my research is getting me quite confused.   I gladly welcome all advice that you have implemented.

The most frustrating thing with all of this is;  that there is so much free information on blogging, but when it comes to this legal stuff, I can’t seem to find it.

Disclaimer:  I am no lawyer, I don’t know anything.   The URL I share I found interesting but I don’t know how valid they are.  One is about 4 years old  – so that information may be old and invalid.  I am clueless.

Thanks in advance.
