I have been writing on my blog for a while now. I use a style of writing that suits me. I realise that this style could be interpreted as “factual”. I try to keep room for interpretation and doubt in how I write my texts, but honestly, I am not a writer. So as a reminder for myself I am stating this to myself:

Please keep in mind that your blog (I am writing to myself now) is not meant to be factual.

I sometimes use words, put together in a sentence, that could read as factual. I remind myself that those words should be read as “As far as I know at this moment in time”.

My blog is a diary for me. I put down “stuff” so I can read it back later or to log what I have “found”, “realised for the first time”, “discovered” or “learned”.

I am Dutch. This means English / American is not my first lanquage and I am going to make mistakes. I try to use “Brittish” as my spelling checker on all my devices, but I am sure some “American” will get into my blog. I won’t be able to notice ­čśë just saying.

I have a request for anyone reading my blog. If you found anything on my blog you know to be inacurate, incomplete etc, please send me feedback about it. I highly appreciate any opertunaty to learn.

Use of Images

I try to use my own photo’s on my blog. These photo’s will have “Image by iLaddie” in the “alt-text”. These images may be used under (CC) by others.

To illustrate my blog I sometimes use screen captures from websites or Google Images. I will mention the source below the image. I try to screen capture images that are not copy write protected.

I try not to use Copy-Write Protected images on my blog. If anyone finds that I accidentally did so then please let me know and I will promptly replace or remove the image.

Use of Texts

To illustrate by blog I sometimes use texts found in work written by others. I will try to use my own words when writing my blogs, but honestly sometimes is best to quote since the original author has written it as it should be read. I try to illustrate these texts by mentioning the author and placing them in italics. I put the word “Quote” in from of them like shown below.

Quote:

“Text found in another source”┬á
