Comments
Your comment email address is not public (only I can see it). Be polite; I don’t wanna moderate, but I reserve the right to edit or delete comments.

On posts where comments are turned on, the talk bubble icon (first share button) will jump down to the comment form.

Besides the data fields shown in the comments form, your IP address and browser user agent string is collected to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. You can read the Automattic/Gravatar privacy policy here.

Content
All content, including writing, original photography, and original graphics, is not to be copied, reproduced, or published without my written consent. Get in touch via email to ask.

You can share a post link via the included share buttons, or with a text link. The chain link icon (last share button) will copy the address/URL of the post for you.

Email

1. EMAIL LIST
When you subscribe to new post emails, your contact info will not be shared. Unsubscribe at any time.

2. COMMENT NOTICES ON POSTS
When you leave a comment and check the box in the comment form, you’ll get an email when there’s a new comment on that post. It’s an easy way for you to know if there are responses after your comment.

NOTE: Check the response(s); THEN unsubscribe from the included Unsubscribe link in the email. Please contact me if you deleted the email that contains the unsubscribe link.

Links
Please assume that affiliate links may be used on this site. This means that if you click a product or retailer link, and then make a purchase, I make a commission at no extra cost to you. Any affiliate income I earn goes towards keeping this site up.

Also, referral links may also be used, where I receive perks like extra storage.
