These days….

Everybody has a blog.

Maybe you were one of the originals who published a niche blog that now has major buzz. Or, you started a blog as an outlet for your creative energy.

Or, maybe you thought it would be good for business.

Or, just needed someone to “talk” too.

What ever your reason it’s out here.

In the real world.

It doesn’t matter if you do it once a month. A week. A day.

It doesn’t matter if bloggy spectators know you or not.

We are all part of this cyber, wild-wild west.

But, there are rules. Enough of them for you to care.

Of course, you can continue to post all willy nilly.

You can keep on expressing your uninhibited genius…

And listening to your non-lawyer friends about what to do and what not to do.

That’s perfectly fine (until ish goes down).

Or, you can take this thing seriously. You can try to understand the legal world of which you are now an inhabitant (willing or unwillingly).

This iBlog legal series will get you started on the right path, but it’s legal information not advice.  At some point, you should consult with a licensed attorney in your jurisdiction.
