Europe is different

Whenever I see information about blogging, internet marketing, or just plain old website creation on-line, it is often from a U.S.-American perspective.

There is so much information about FTC guidelines, CAN-SPAM, and “Fair use” around, that it often gets overlooked that things in Europe are different.

That doesn’t mean we don’t have rules to follow here.  In fact, we have quite a few, and the trick is to make our rules compatible with all of those wonderful international, but US-based, services.

On this site I will be looking at those rules and which services are suitable to use as a blogger in Europe, and which ones should be avoided.

I will be commenting on the latest on-line news that affects European Bloggers.

And I will be offering my services as an IT consultant to bloggers in Europe who need help with the technical or back-engine side of their sites, in accordance with those European rules.

So sign up on the right-hand side to receive the latest information by e-mail, bookmark the page, or add it to your RSS reader so that you’re ready to go.

Oh, and by the way, I charge in Euro.
