As there are many people making money these days from blogs and advertising I am curious to know what insurance a sole trader blogger would require if a member of the public were to sue the sole trader for some advice the sole trader wrote on their blog which the claimant is trying to say had a negative impact upon their life.

With the claim happy cluture in Ireland it can be quite expensive to hire a solicitor to defend claims no matter how frivolous they are so what insurance would cover this scenario (legal fees + court costs + any payout to claimant)?

Thanks.
