GDPR is General Data Protection Regulation is the regulation that requires all internet businesses to protect the personal data and privacy of EU citizens for transactions that occur within EU member states. Non-compliance could cost companies dearly.
Every business needs to be compliant. If EU has access to your site, whether you sell products or not, you must be compliant.
I have done a bit of research, but implore you to do your own research as well. It’s your business after all.
This is one good resource in plain terms
This is a good source for quickly creating policies
There are also Plugins available for WordPress users to help with GDPR.
Check with your web site developer to pick out what is best for you.

Choosing a Name for Your Blog
If you already own a website, you understand the significance of choosing a good domain name. A good domain name not only enhances the branding of your business and makes it easy for your readers to share with others.
If your blog is going to play a significant role in your business, then spend some time choosing the right domain name for it. People tend to remember memorable domain names that end with a dot com to spread it around easier.
Note: If you already have a domain name and hosting, you can easily add the WordPress as yoursite . com / blog — and skip this step of choosing a domain for your blog.
You can order your domain name with your hosting at Merchantmoms
Now that your blog is installed, you want it to look nice. Oftentimes, your web designer can match your blog to your site for a reasonable fee.
Blogger comes with many themes ready to go, and WordPress offers many within the WordPress installation Appearance / Themes area to choose from. A quick search for WordPress or Blogger themes will gather plenty of results, both free and paid. One of the more popular ones is found at http://themes.wordpress.net
If the Theme that you are installing provides instructions, be sure to read through and follow those instructions for the successful installation of the Theme. It is recommended that Theme developers provide installation instructions for their own Themes, because Themes can provide special optional functionality that may require more steps than the basic installation steps covered here. If your Theme does not work after following any provided instructions, please contact the Theme author for help.
