When to Trademark or Copyright Your Blog

Hey everyone,

I originally started blogging just for fun but now I’ve taken it more seriously, consulted with a brand designer to give my page a much needed facelift, and have started to become feature writers for other websites.  I’ve been considered trademarking my blog’s name and perhaps copyrighting a few posts.  Has anyone taken the legal “leap” yet?  Any advice?  There is some costs involved and I wanted to get opinions before I continued.

Thanks!
Sydney

What’s the blog’s URL/name?

By default your content is copyrighted, as far as I know. No one can take it and use it as their own. That doesn’t mean it will stop people from doing it though.

What are your concerns?
