Permissions Policy

This site aims to be informational and helpful to creative entrepreneurs and lifestyle publishers. I offer a variety of free and premium services that readers can choose from depending on their needs. Here are a few things that are important to me regarding the content:

Sharing + Using Blog Post Content
Most of the posts and free downloads take hours (even days) to create and often include images that I do not own (but source). As such, I ask that you always include an explicit link back to the original post. You May:

  • print posts/content of our site for non-commercial use (up to 10 copies only) as long as you include the following copyright notice: “© White Oak Creative, LLC. All rights reserved. Originally published at
  • Repost a summary of an article (or an excerpt of up to 100 words) with a link back to the original post.
  • Link to our site or any of our public posts.


We do not allow any of the following without our written permission:

  • Reposting our content in its entirety
  • Altering or selling any content on this site
  • Translating blog posts, content, and themes into other languages.

Image Sources
If you ever find an image to be unintentionally missing a link or sourced incorrectly, please send me an email. I will gladly make the change.

Please keep your comments related to the content and appropriate (clean). We reserve the right to remove any comment.

Be Kind
The online sphere is smaller than you would think, so please do not copy. I do notice, and I take it quite personally. It’s devastating to see someone take a carefully crafted idea and claim it as their own. Don’t be that person. Inappropriate, aggressively promotional, and negative comments will be deleted immediately.
