Blog and Be Legal (Lite!)

Keep Your Blog Legal (for Less!)

Who knew you needed to worry about the LEGAL side when it comes to your blog?

Contracts. Privacy Statements. Taxes. Copyrights. Disclosures. Trademarks. Disclaimers. Terms and Conditions.

It's true. If your blog is brand new, you haven't monetized yet and are just starting to build it up, you still need to make sure that it's legal. This "lite" version of my signature course is perfect for bloggers who want the legal basics and aren't worried about the more "business-y" sides of blogging (yet).

This course will help you to make sure your blog is covered LEGALLY.


 

Even hobby bloggers and newbie bloggers need to know about the legal side. This course will give you the peace of mind for growing your blog.

You want to start a blog, you're a brand new blogger or you've finally decided to take your blog a bit more seriously. You've heard that there can be legal consequences for bloggers, but you don't think that really affects you.

Even if you're a brand new blogger and aren't making a cent (or are still making very little), you still need to comply with the laws surrounding blogging. Things like email marketing, giveaways, complying with copyright laws and more.

I know that the full version of Blog and Be Legal isn't for everyone. That course is tailored for bloggers who are at the "business" stage of their blog.

But even if you're just starting out, you need to know about some really important legal aspects of blogging. That's why I created Blog and Be Legal Lite! - it's a shortened version of the full course with just the basics for someone who doesn't need all the templates, monetization or contract info just yet.

When it comes to the law, the main concerns are:

  1. I don't want to be sued.
  2. I don't want to have to sue other people (and what do I do if I do need to sue someone).

When your blog isn't a business yet, you might think you don't need to worry about the law or lawsuits, but there are still important aspects to blogging you need to be concerned with. This course will help you with those aspects, so that you are starting things off on the right foot.

The law is vast but it doesn't need to be overwhelming and scary. This course will take you through what you need to know, start to finish, such as:

  • What legal language you need on your site in order to keep it protected,
  • How to protect your original content,
  • The rules for working with brands and sponsored posts,
  • The laws surrounding giveaways,
  • And a ton more!

If you're ready to make sure you're keeping your blog legal, Blog and Be Legal Lite! is just what you need.

(If you ever want to upgrade to the full version of the course, no worries - just contact me and you can get the full course for the difference between what you paid and the current price of Blog and Be Legal!)

(PS - I'm a US based and licensed attorney, so this course was created with American bloggers and business owners in mind. This course does not address the law in other countries or international legal issues.

Purchasing and taking this course does not create an attorney-client relationship and you should always consult with an attorney before acting upon any information presented in this course.)

 

In my years of blogging, I've noticed that no one is talking about the legal side of things. We worry about images and sponsored posts and ads, but we tend to brush off the legal side of things. We think "I'm just a little blog, I've got nothing to worry about."

But even for brand new bloggers, you still need to know about the legal side, even if your blog isn't a business yet.

Yes, the likelihood of getting sued or needing to sue someone is pretty low for bloggers (and for most people in general). But the best time to educate yourself on the legal side of things is before you encounter an issue. Before you get sued, before you need to send a cease and desist letter, before you realize your email list isn't set up properly.

You get my point.

Just because no one is talking about the legal side of blogging doesn't mean that it's not important. That's why I created Blog and Be Legal and Blog and Be Legal Lite! In this version of the course, you get the basics you need to know for keeping your blog legal. You have lifetime access to all the course videos and bonuses (plus any future updates to the course), so this priceless information will be at your fingertips anytime you need it.

What You Get:

This course is broken down into a series of short videos. You can watch all the course videos at once or just watch those videos that are applicable to your business at this time. You have lifetime access to the course materials and can come back to them at any time.

There are four lessons broken down into 12 separate videos so you can watch just what you need on your own time. Plus, since the law is always changing I'll be updating the videos or creating new videos as necessary. And you'll get lifetime access to those updates.

These lessons are valued at over $1,000! Lawyers charge hundreds of dollars per hour but you get all this legal information in one place without needing to hire your own personal attorney today.

+ The Bonuses:

  • A legal template for your very own disclosure policy statement - this template currently sells for $50 on my website.
  • PLUS downloadable goodies to help keep you on track - info guides on email lists and giveaways, disclaimer worksheet, JV webinar checklist and money spreadsheet!

PLUS - If you love Blog and Be Legal Lite! and want more legal info and help down the line, just shoot me an email anytime. You can upgrade to the full version of the course for just the difference in price (the current price of Blog and Be Legal minus what you paid for Blog and Be Legal Lite!)

I am so grateful to Jackie for sharing her legal insight with us. This course covers all the bases and will help any blogger take that next step towards legalizing their venture. Jackie truly takes the guess work out of understanding legal jargon, with each module she addresses various legal issues we all deal with as bloggers. This course is an investment any legitimate blogger should make.
-- Jeanine, The Business Ref

Jackie is a phenomenal teacher. The law is so intimidating, but she makes it manageable with her in-depth coverage of each topic. She explains complicated legal terms in bite-size portions so even beginner business owners can understand. Plus, she is absolutely the sweetest and seamlessly finds ways to engage the audience even on the most difficult topics.

In my years of juggling my blog Jade and Oak with my full time day job, I've learned a thing or two about balancing blogging with my career. I've developed a system for success - both with my blog and with my life. In the last two years, I've managed my blog all while switching jobs, getting married, selling a house and buying a new house (within the same week!), vacationing and everything else. I also work as a social media manager on the side (yep - on top of my blog and my day job as an attorney!)

When I'm not blogging or lawyering, I enjoy spending my free time with my husband and our two pugs, Bowie and Rosie. I also attempt to be a DIY interior decorator, take adult ballet classes, read as much as I have time for and enjoy traveling when I get a free second too!
