I like to share some of the stuff I find funny or interesting or amazing that I get sent to me by family and friends, but since my email account was hacked recently it’s become a bit of a rave. I changed my email account password of course and as an extra precaution I deleted all my contacts. So forwarding funny and interesting stuff is a bit tiresome to say the least – hence this blog.
Content is published pretty much as received – except when it isn’t. Email quote marks on forwarded email text are stripped. Slideshows, eg .pps files are unpacked or sampled for publishing and made available for downloading as sent. Other formatting changes are made to fit the blog format. Senders comments are included as-is, any comments I make are prefixed (or suffixed) with “Ed.” or something similar.
When I get a sense of deja vu all over again I only do a cursory look to see if I have already shared an email, so duplicates are very possible.
New Rule. (with a nod to Bill Maher) – Facebook has become a preferred sharing vehicle for some of my family and friends so I now include FB as a source.
15Sep2013 – I learned today that ads may be appearing on my blog posts. I have no control over the ads other than purchasing an upgrade – which I choose not to do. See here for info on the WordPress ad policy.
18Dec2013 – Originally I posted only non-subscribed content, but recently I have changed that to include material received from sites I subscribe to such as TwistedSifter and PICTURECORRECT.
27Jan2014 – For clarity, with the exception of this page and an occasional editorial comment none of the content on this blog originates from me. WordPress adds the personal attribution automatically.
