Don’t let the legal stuff stress you out…

I’m on a mission to help make the legal side of blogging approachable for you, so you can stop worrying about lawsuits and fines and get back to blogging and changing the world (and your bank account 😉).

 Walking the Walk, Blogging the Blog

Starting in the Personal Finance Space

I’ve been blogging since 2014 with my first site, through that site I’ve had a guest post published in a book. It also kickstarted a freelance career. I’ve written for and been quoted in big-name sites like:

  • Business Insider
  • NerdWallet
  • GoBankingRate
  • Student Loan Hero
  • The Penny Hoarder
  • Credit Karma
  • The Huffington Post
  • Budgets are Sexy
  • The Simple Dollar
  • Smart Asset
  • The Happy Lawyer Project
  • The Financial Diet
  • The College Investor
  • Student Loan Planner
  • Rockstar Finance
  • Lending Point

Putting My Law Degree to Good Use

I started in the personal finance space because I had a ton of student loan debt – law school is pricey!

My passions eventually collided. I started talking about the legal side of blogging – to help bloggers understand that while the legal stuff is important, it doesn’t need to be scary or hard.

I started speaking on the topic at conferences and virtual summits including:

  • Rebel Boss Summit
  • FinCon
  • Blogger Breakthrough Summit

But not everyone can attend summits or conferences and I knew this was information all bloggers needed to know, so I started guest posting and working with blogging course creators to provide lessons on the legal side of blogging. Here are some places you can find my writing and teaching:

  • FinCon Expo (article)
  • Making Sense of Affiliate Marketing (course)
  • Making Sense of Cents (article)
  • Understanding WordPress – How to Navigate Self-Hosted WordPress (free course)
  • Mommy on Purpose (article)
  • Do You Even Blog (podcast)
