  1. Thanks so much Debby for including two of my posts in this great selection of links.. so much to think about when going through the whole process of writing a book, before, during and after, whilst watching out for scam artists.. Will share in the blogger daily on Tuesday..β™₯β™₯

    1. As we all should be. I clicked on the little three dots > settings > privacy sandbox, and sure enough I was auto-opted, it’s not a myth. We have to turn it off manually.

  2. WOW! This is one of the best of your collection of tips ever!. Lots of bookmarking and studying already done. Here’s a tip from me that’s too small to stand alone on a blog post: Try typing with your eyes closed. Keeps you focused on what’s coming from your mind and not what’s on the screen. Works well with music in the background that feeds the brain too.

      1. Yeah. I’m not in the Sandbox Privacy trial and have always automatically blocked third-party cookies. A new thing just happened two days in a row–a Chrome featured article of some sort notification came up not on my PC but on my phone! Got to check that out today.

  3. Thanks for the links, Debby. I’m particularly interesting in the unconventional blurb. I barely know how to write the conventional one! Ha ha. Thanks for vetting some wonderful posts. Off to read!
