I'm not collecting data to use. I don't think I've ever done that, with the exception of a few blog hops that I created long, long ago.
However, because of GDPR, I feel like I need to make a few things clear for anyone reading this blog or anyone who accidentally wanders onto my WordPress blog, which I update rarely.
I am not responsible for republished content from this blog on other blogs or websites. If you follow a link from this blog to another site (when I create links to other groups, blog hops, or news articles), it is your responsibility to check the privacy policies at those sites.
I sent out one last newsletter and I'm cancelling it for two reasons: 1) With my health a bit wonky, I can't stare at a screen for very long. Getting the the opt-in stuff taken care of for my newsletter was beginning to feel a bit daunting. 2) I have only sent out 5 newsletters in a year. I don't think I have a strong newsletter vibe going. For those who actually signed up for it, thank you for your awesome encouragement and support!
If at any time, I run a giveaway here on my blog, I will try to make it clear that it is an opt-in type giveaway.
What do you think? Have I covered my bases? Have you put some kind of policy into place for your blog or newsletter? Please let me know if I missed something.
