No Cookies and No Pop-ups

My website is unique in a number of ways. There are others who do the same, but it is not the majority.

First, there are no HTTP cookies used by this site. This means that no one is tracking you as you read my blog. Links on this site may take you to others sites that will track you.


Doing this is very inconvenient for content creators. I can’t use Google Analytics or WordPress’s JetPack to get stats. I have to rely on my Webhosting stats alone. I also can’t offer their subscribe to blog by mail feature, which I used in the past.

Second, I also don’t have any affiliate links on the site. I used to have one to Green Geeks, but I removed the link but left the image, letting people know I run an eco-friendly website.

Third, I don’t have any annoying pop-ups. The only advertising is a link to my books on Amazon, and that is just for people who are interested.

This means that this blog makes me no money, but costs me to produce. I pay the Webhosting and domain name fees out of my own pocket. Why? It is a labor of love for you, my few readers.

What can you do? Subscribe and tells others about my site. That’s all I ask.
