After blogging for years as an unseasoned blogger, I suddenly learn that I need a disclaimer. What in the world is a disclaimer and why do I need one?
First, what is a disclaimer? Here is what dictionary had to say it’s a statement that denies something, especially responsibility. Wait a minute. Can I be held responsible for my thoughts and opinions? What happened to freedom of speech?
Here is a great site for you to check out to learn more about disclaimers…raelyntan.com. Below is a quote from her blog. On her page, you will also learn proper placement for the disclaimer. She too breaks down what you need to include in your disclaimer.
A blog disclaimer is a legal statement to limit your liability and advise others that you cannot be held liable for information included on your blog. raelyntan
“Your blog disclaimer can be a short statement included in your blog’s footer or sidebar, a longer paragraph included on a separate page of your blog or a paragraph in your blog’s terms and conditions statement”. raelyntan
My question for you is, do you have a disclaimer on your blog? How did you produce it? Any helpful sites that you can recommend to help those of us who are learning?
Thanks and Happy Blogging!
