Copyrights and Blog Policies

Some of the photos and graphics on this blog come from the public domain, were offered free from image sites or I’ve paid a usage fee. Most are my own including the background and header photos. The copyright notice is at the end of this post. If you fail to abide by it, “May the curse of Mary Malone and her nine, blind, illegitimate children chase you so far over the hills of damnation that the good Lord Himself can’t find you with a telescope.”

Visits and Follows:  Before we get to the official copyright notice, I’d like to tell you about my blog habits because I get questions about my policies quite often. First and foremost how and why I visit or follow your blogs. If you follow me, I will visit you and if you have actual content that I don’t find offensive, I will follow you. Simple. I come across a lot of blogs when surfing around and I follow those that interest me. Although it’s appreciated, I don’t expect those to visit my blog or follow it, that’s not why I follow.

Visiting Order: Anyone leaving a comment will be visited first, likes will be next, then my followers. I only recently activated my like button because I realized without it, I had no way of knowing who visited unless they left a comment. When and if I have time, last on the list are the blogs I follow who don’t follow me. I’m sorry I have to do it this way and sometimes I’m frustrated that I can’t visit as many bloggers as I’d like. Time simply does not permit.

Awards: This an award free blog. I’m always pleased and flattered to be offered an award and although I greatly appreciate your thoughtfulness in nominating me, I don’t accept awards.

Facebook and Twitter: Follow me on Twitter and I’ll follow you. That is unless you are just selling twitter followers or are some other spammer. If you unfollow me, I will repay the favor. Because of Twitter policy of not allowing your following number to be much larger than your followers, I have to do it that way.

I don’t send friend requests to anyone on Facebook unless I know them personally or they are family. I do like and follow a lot of pages. So if you have a page you’d like me to like or follow, just let me know. If I receive a friend request, I’ll check your Facebook profile and if it appears you’re not a creepy stalker or something, I’ll accept your request.

Posting Comments on this Blog: If you post a comment I will answer it. If I miss any, it’s accidental or I am not blogging for some reason such as illness or work. If that happens, I apologize. You’ll also get a visit from me and a comment if I can find new content I haven’t already liked or commented on. This is an equal opportunity blog.  All comments are welcome, even derogatory ones. So feel free to express yourself.

Okay, here’s the copyright notice.

  5. Ok Woman, it’s been almost a year that I started blogging and am still going and it’s all YOUR fault! I started about the same time last year that you were QUITTING because of “patent issues and dishonest people” and it scared the bee-jeebers outta me, so I wrote to you and you very kindly and lovingly reassured me that MOST bloggers were pretty nice people. And because of you, dear lady, I stayed….thank you, Sweet Pea. My writing’s not always “the greatest”, but it’s been a “gift to me” of sorts and has given me an outlet that I otherwise would have never had….Thanks, E! ❤

    • Wow, Lucie. I doubt you’ll ever know just how much your lovely comment means to me. I was all down in the mouth this morning and decided to check my emails as I do every morning. Imagine my surprise when I opened my blog and saw this. Just about brought me to tears. I haven’t had a lot of time for blogging lately, but I still try to keep up with all you guys. I and the rest of your many, many fans are soooo HAPPY you kept going, Lucie. Congratulations on your one year anniversary and here’s to many more! Thank you, sweet friend for taking time to leave such a beautiful comment. 🙂 ❤
