That Cookie Notice
European Union laws require you to give European Union visitors information about cookies used on your blog. In many cases, these laws also require you to obtain consent.
As a courtesy, we have added a notice on your blog to explain Google's use of certain Blogger and Google cookies, including use of Google Analytics and AdSense cookies.
You are responsible for confirming this notice actually works for your blog, and that it displays. If you employ other cookies, for example by adding third party features, this notice may not work for you.
So I did a little more checking and found that a really ugly notice pops up at the top of the screen if you happen to be visiting from the European Union:
This is a generic notice provided by Google to comply with the EU's requirements. So I thought I'd do a little 'splainin' :
I check the list periodically just to see if anyone is reading, since I only average one comment per post. This is not a hugely active site...on days when I put up a new post, I'll get around 150 visits, not including folks who are reading via bloglovin (I don't think the stat counter records those visits unless the person kills the bloglovin' frame) or other feedburners, but it is a little encouraging to see that folks have come by, even if they're not leaving comments.
That's all the use I will ever make of cookie information. I am very honored that anyone would click through from where ever you found a link...face book, a search engine, whatever...and allow me to share a bit. If you'd like to leave a comment letting me know you stopped by, that'd be great, but really, I'm just glad you're here.
Now I must go eat a cookie, because I have suddenly developed a craving...
