This isn’t the most riveting subject but its good to know there is a FREE course out there for any NEWBIE blogger.
Jade is an attorney and blogger and will give you the low down on making sure your blog is LEGAL!
I haven’t taken this course specifically because I am based in the UK so US law doesn’t’ cover me.
But for a free course, this is what she will be talking about why you should care about the legal side of blogging how to protect your content from internet thieves- VERY useful especially with the new GDPR EU rules coming into force. Having a good system to protect your blog from hackers is extremely important which also coincides with why having a blog giveaway might be illegal plus more.
Suzi takes you from start to how she made over $9000 per month in less than a year.
She gives you a template to start your blog during the first month- its a step by step guide on what you should be doing – if you like CHECKLISTS this if for you.
Each day of the month is covered by a timescale for the activity great if you need a clear guide on how long each activity will take! Ie. BUSY mom!
In addition, she also gives you additional resources for each of the day’s launch plan.
I have to say you would have to be going some to try and get everything done in a month if you aren’t sure what you are doing so I would maybe consider it a three-month plan just to be on the safe side!
Suzi is amazing how much she achieves is incredible especially with three young kids!
