Imagine that you're a full-time blogger on the rise. Imagine that your husband has quit his job to work for your blog and brand handling the business aspect of the blog leaving you to focus on the content for the blog. Now, imagine that the two of you separate and the next time you log in to your blog dashboard you find that your user name and password no longer work. You call tech support and they inform you that the domain owner, your husband, has removed that user name from having access to the dashboard. What do you do?
This is the setup in Ladies' Night by Mary Kay Andrews. I've loved all of her books that I've read or listened to, but, being a blogger, this one was especially interesting because it brought up several business and legal issues that every blogger should think about:
- Who owns your domain?
- Who has access to your blog dashboard?
- Have you trademarked your blog name?
- How often do you change your password?
If you're looking for a good summer read, Ladies' Night is a great choice. And you don't have to be a blogger to enjoy it. Aside from the blogger storyline, there's romance, mystery, excitement, comedy – everything you want in a light, entertaining summer read. Have you read it? Did you enjoy it as much as I did? What are you currently reading?
