I have removed my website from the server. With the EU's new law and my budget, I'm going to have to just let the website go. I'm sorry to everyone who used the website, but it's not financially viable to keep it right now, and especially not when I haven't been able to study the new law regarding cookies and notifications and what have you. A lot of authors don't use websites anymore, and I think I'll stick to my blog, Twitter, and FaceBook for promos from now on.
Last night was another ER night, this time with my oldest daughter. We do NOT need so much adventure in our lives. So today, I'm tired and cranky and trying to read up on this:
European Union laws require you to give European Union visitors information about cookies used and data collected 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, and other data collected by Google.
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. If you include functionality from other providers there may be extra information collected from your users.
Learn more about this notice and your responsibilities.
I can't see if the notice is up on the blog in outher countries, like Blogger says it should be. Those of you in EU, could you let me know if the notice shows? Thanks. I'd hate to have to shut down the blog, too, but man. With the way all these laws are popping up, I don't know what to think anymore. And I don't think I'd be happy without this blog and interacting with y'all.
I hope y'all have a peaceful evening. I'm going to call it an early night here. Sweet dreams ***huggz***
