Heads up, dear readers: I’ll be deleting the vast majority of my subscription list shortly after publishing this post.
It’s not that I don’t want us to stay connected. Not at all.
Rather, even though there are no business transactions between us, it’s important that I honour European legislation designed to protect the privacy of EU residents.

Immediately to the right of the photo you see in this post, there’s an icon labelled, “Click here to SUBSCRIBE or RE-SUBSCRIBE”.
Click on it, and you’ll be asked to enter your email address.
That will generate an automated email, which will ask you to click on a confirmation icon. It’s that simple.
It’s not only Europeans who need to pay attention to General Data Protection Regulation, also known as GDPR. It affects all businesses, trainers and bloggers who have followers or clients living in Europe.
If you’re a reader I’ve interviewed or otherwise met, and you live somewhere other than Europe, I’ll leave your subscription intact. If your email address clearly indicates you live somewhere other than Europe, I’ll leave your subscription intact.
Since I collect so little personal information (only your email addresses) from subscribers, though, I’d be guessing at whether or not some of you live in Europe … and that’s why I’m asking you to re-subscribe.
About your privacy
I encourage readers to take a minute to read my Privacy Statement, which you can also find under both my Home page and as one of the drop-down pages under About.
While we’re at it, and knowing that readers have been inundated with such material from all sorts of service providers, you may also want to have a look at my Disclosure page. That’s one of the three drop-down pages under About.
