Let me start by saying that this post is going to be based solely on my own personal opinion. I AM the owner of an approved trademark and I did not consult a trademark lawyer, or anybody else. Instead I did my own research online and then I went ahead with it. I’m not an expert, by any stretch of the imagination. However, I did receive approval for my trademark so presumably I did something right! This is my guide to trademark a blog name.
Ten years ago my life was so different from what it is now. I didn’t have a permanent place to live. I was in debt. Being able to pay for food shopping and pay for the bus to work was a real daily concern. Five years ago life was getting much better and I was making money online, paying down debt and building a future with my lovely husband. Now I can hardly believe all the changes in my life and the things that blogging has done for me. Here are my 8 reasons why I love blogging!
Hello! It’s that time of year, again, where some of us bloggers are heading off to Manchester, for the BlogOn conference. For me this is an exciting time to meet new brands, learn about the must-have products this Christmas (LOTS of toys in our home) and meet up with friends, new and old. I love that blogging opens me up to meeting lots of people, from all different parts of the country, and that thanks to BlogOn we can all be together at an event. Anyway, here we go, the BlogOnToys Introduce Yourself Linky!
AD. Being a freelance contractor has so many highs for me. Being able to be home with my family. Having time for loved ones. Helping people if they are having a crisis. Also, I’ve been able to meet a great network of blogging friends and I’ve met some people online that I now know in real-life and feel like I’ve got a great support network around me. One downside to contracting can be dealing with getting paid! Today I want to talk to you about App Paye.
In May I’m going to be heading off to BlogOnX, a fantastic bloggers conference held in Manchester. This is going to be my Third Blog On Conference and I’m really excited, based on my experiences with the last two conferences. I’m excited to see my lovely blogging friends, socialise, network with brands and pick up tips and advice from other bloggers who are smashing it.
