Do you have a newsletter?

Of course! Leave your email here to subscribe. Or grab the RSS feed.

Updates are super minimal, certified bullshit-free. I use HEY World, which has no trackers, cookies, or javascript.

How can I support your work?

How very kind. To help keep the site servers chugging and the words a-flowing, send some one-time dough or become a monthly supporter at Buy me a coffee or Ko-fi.

May I use your content?

I realize how easy it is to copy and paste words, but I’ve written everything here from the heart—it’s my craft. To go uncredited somewhere would be hurtful.

Anyway, you wouldn’t take content without asking, because you’re an outstanding human being. A true moral soul.

If you’d like to use anything on this site anywhere for any reason, just shoot me a quick email. I’ll most likely be incredibly flattered. Well, flattened, really. Knocked aback by the swift fist of ego.

Do you care about my privacy?

One thousand times yes. I’m a big privacy advocate. I used to use Splitbee for simple, anonymous page stats so I could see which posts were most popular, but now that’s gone. I guess it doesn’t really make a difference whether Rusty Rooster was read 1 or 3 times in the past 6 months.

What’s with the dog?

I was tired of updating my profile photo on every capillary of the internet and wanted something consistent to use in the places I knew I wouldn’t visit often or remember to update—somewhat of a digital signature, but not a logo. One day, I scrolled past the dog, and that was it. I don’t know who made her, else I’d give due credit.
