Joan Stewart’s weekly newsletter arrived on April 28th and my attention was immediately caught by the lead article “Bloggers, What If You’re Sued?” In fact, this subject is not hypothetical for Joan; she actually was sued for something she wrote in her blog.
After reading the article, I clicked through to her blog post that goes into this topic further. And then I took her advice and I’m now taking a free online course on libel and defamation so that I can hopefully pass the quiz to become a member of the Media Bloggers Association.
I thank Joan for sharing her experience with the rest of us. And read her entire blog post yourself — it’s for your own protection.
