The best and most successful sites have one thing in common. They have established themselves as a leader in their particular industry by building a strong brand. A strong brand is absolutely essential to your business. Likewise, maintaining a strong web presence is also important.
One of the most awesome things about blogging is that it’s incredibly easy to start up. You don’t need any coding or programming experience. You don’t have to be a prize-winning journalist. You can start a blog in less than 15 minutes.
But one thing bloggers often don’t quite know how to do is protect their brand legally.
When learning how to start a blog and reading about the experiences of other bloggers, from very successful bloggers to those who are just starting out, I noticed that only a handful of blogs contained the legal pages and protections they need to protect their businesses and brands.
I’m Adrienne. I’m a lawyer, an entrepreneur, an artist, the primary blogger here on LettuceDiscuss, and I love designing WordPress sites. I advise businesses on litigation and compliance matters.
As a licensed attorney who loves creating new brands and ideas, I created LettuceDiscuss to offer tips and resources that can help others blog legally.
LettuceDiscuss is a blog that talks about starting a blog, branding, and protecting your hard work. Your brand is not just a domain name or logo or colors. Your brand is your customer’s perception about your blog, website, or company. It’s what people say about you when you aren’t in the room. All of this has value and is worthy of legal protection.
Follow my journey on this site as I share (1) the blogging tips and resources I’ve used to create several sites and (2) recommendations to help you blog legally.
While we’re on the topic of blogging legally, it’s important for you to note: While I am a lawyer, I am not YOUR lawyer. The information provided on this website is for informational and educational purposes only. Read my disclaimer and stay tuned for ideas on creating yours.
