Legal Essentials for Starting an Online Store

Today's post is from Leah Hamilton at TermsFeed! This information is meant for general guidance— if you need specific legal advice, we recommend consulting directly with a professional.

Do you also have the legal aspects sorted out? Making sure you check all the boxes and have all the right forms might not seem as fun, but it’s an essential part of running a business, and keeping your customers happy.

Starting a Blog with Jimdo: Part 1

Blogging, the act of posting regular updates about a particular topic on a website, is one of the most popular methods of publishing on the internet.

These range from teenagers ranting about video games in their bedrooms to massive, multi-author sites like Boing Boing or even a site like Huffington Post which demonstrates the blurry lines between a blog and an online newspaper. When it comes to building a blog on your Jimdo website, you’re probably looking for something squarely in the middle of those examples.
