Dear Readers,

Due to legislation passed in Europe, bloggers in the US who gather any personal data from Europeans must make their privacy policy clear. Because I have European readers, this post is written for your information and in compliance with the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation).

The GDPR seeks to create a data protection framework across the EU and for Europeans around the globe that aims to give back control of personal data, while imposing strict rules on those hosting and processing this data anywhere in the world.


In compliance with the heightened standards of the GDPR, the latest and most advanced security protection is installed on this website (, ShowKnowGrow, LLC) to guard the website and your information from a wide array of malicious threats, including malware, hacking, DDOS, and brute force attacks.

Users may be asked for, as appropriate, name, email address, and website.

Users may, however, anonymously visit the website or the Blog. The Blog will collect personal identification information from Users only if they voluntarily submit such information when requested.
