In a recent skype-face (Grace and Frankie fans will get that reference) conversation with my sis, I told her how pretty she looked. She opined that sometimes it helps to put on a cute face when you're feeling as if you're not getting anywhere. My mind makes weird connections and it leapt from that conversation … Continue reading One-Liner Wednesdays: I’m Pretty Slow
Are we there yet? I'm running out of words!
GDPR has been a four-letter word on the Internet for a while. I’ve yet to see anybody other than the fine folk who came up with it praise its raison d’être. People are still confused. Those who understand what is required are complaining that they have to do whatever should be done. I’m still trying to figure out why it’s important because I thought that the People of the Internet knew that everything we do here is tracked, recorded, archived and sometimes used for nefarious purposes. I’ve decided it’s nothing to do with me. I don’t have an email list (in fact, I have a grand total of two email subscribers one of whom is my sister, the other seems to be a French bot). I don’t mine my readers’ data to satisfy my lust for world domination. I don’t sell the data that my blog collects to third parties. Technically, it isn’t even my blog, it belongs to WordPress so if you have any questions, ask them.
Dan over at No Facilities has done a great job writing about this whole thing. Go read his post. As an added bonus, he’s got great photos as usual. Happy Sunday!

You should understand that, due to regulations like GDPR and some stuff the folks in California are passing or already passed, I probably care more about your privacy than you do. You may not know, understand or even believe the number of fragments of your virtual DNA that you leave behind as you read posts like this. Let’s just say it wouldn’t require Lt. Columbo to piece it all together – Barney Fife could handle the task quite nicely.
If you read a post, it’s like you were caught on a surveillance camera. If you like a post, its like pushing the doorbell and not wiping your prints off. If you leave a comment, you…

Endings are sometimes beginnings and that's certainly the case with The Pickled Blog Project Facebook group! As we said a sad goodbye to Big Up Your Blogger, the best blogger community that I've ever been a part of, Em and her pickles arrived just in time to dry our tears and reunite us. Besides the fact that … Continue reading The #PickledBlogs Tag
Last Saturday, a couple of hours before Camp NaNoWriMo was scheduled to begin, I decided to commit to participating. For the last two years, I've seen excited posts about NaNoWriMo and thought that I should give it a try. For two years, I let the opportunity pass me by. No more! I'm putting my epic … Continue reading Sssshhhh! I’m Writing
I wrote a blog post about my favourite blogs which resonated with other bloggers. I jokingly came up with a name for a Facebook group for the small blogger whose blog doesn't fit anywhere. I could not have predicted that the mere idea of such a group would prove to be fairly popular. From my … Continue reading For the Lonely Niche-less Hobby Blogger
My 31 Day Blog Challenge ended yesterday so technically, this is my 32nd post. I'm so excited that I can't stop. I enjoyed this challenge much more than I thought that I would. This is why we should always be open to trying new things...you just never know. Barring a seven-day hiatus because the telephone … Continue reading 31 Day Blog Challenge: Round-up
