Writing & Blogging
With a few exceptions.
If you win a book giveaway, I will need your physical address. I do nothing with the address beyond that. If I you were to win again, I’d ask for your address again. I believe there was one book to an EU address, before I realized the price of international postage. She seems cool with it. (Waves hi!)
I have contacted a few people I don’t know IRL about guest posts (Waves hi with two hands!). Since I don’t have email addresses, I find the contact over on your blog, or somewhere on social media. In other words, I use an address that you have publicly displayed. I try to keep such exchanges within the bounds of polite conversation. Again, no marketing.
The Follow-By-Email feature is handled by WordPress. Since I use the simple WordPress.COM rather than the more flexible WordPress.ORG, I have no access to the process. A few times, people have stopped getting email notifications. All I can do it look at a list on my dashboard and say, ‘Yup, your name is still on it.’ I couldn’t get the emails if I wanted to.
This has been my practice to date. I have no plans to change.
