Privacy Policy

Who am I?

I’m Stacey and I’m the writer behind this blog. Here’s more about me.

Your Comments

Your thoughts and insights matter to us! When you share your thoughts in the comment section, we gather the details provided in the comment form, along with your IP address and browser information to keep our community safe from spam.

If you’re using Gravatar (a globally recognized avatar), we’ll use an anonymized string (or hash) made from your email address to link to your profile. Check out Gravatar’s privacy policy here: Once your comment is approved, your Gravatar profile picture will be visible alongside your comment.


We’re all about sharing on “Minimize with Purpose,” but if you’re uploading images, please make sure they don’t have location data (EXIF GPS) embedded in them. This helps protect your privacy because anyone can download and extract location data from images on a website.


Our site uses cookies, but only to make your life simpler! If you leave a comment, you can choose to save your name, email address, and website in cookies. This just means you won’t have to re-enter your details next time you want to comment. The cookies will stick around for a year.

When you visit our login page, we’ll use a temporary cookie to see if your browser accepts cookies. It doesn’t store any personal data and disappears when you close your browser.

If you log in, we’ll set a few more cookies to save your login info and screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, screen options cookies for a year. If you tick “Remember Me,” you’ll stay logged in for two weeks. If you log out, the login cookies will be removed.

Embedded Content

Sometimes, we share embedded content from other websites, like videos, images, or articles. This works just like if you were visiting those sites directly. They may collect data about you, use cookies, or track your interaction with the embedded content.

Data Sharing

In case you request a password reset, your IP address will be part of the reset email.

Data Retention

When you comment, we hold onto your comment and its metadata indefinitely. This helps us identify and approve any of your future comments quickly without needing them to wait in a moderation queue.

If you register on our site, we store the personal information provided in your user profile. You can see, edit, or delete your personal information at any time (except for changing your username). Administrators of the site can also view and edit this information.

Your Data Rights

If you’ve registered on this site or have left comments, you can request an exported file of the personal data we hold about you. If you’d like, you can also request that we erase any personal data we have about you. This doesn’t include any data we need to keep for administrative, legal, or security reasons.

Data Safety

We use an automated spam detection service to check visitor comments and ensure our community remains safe and enjoyable for everyone.
