About your privacy, and ​what happens if you subscribe to ARealGreenLife

If you subscribe to my mailing list on this site, I will never share your details or do anything to compromise your privacy.

​I use your email address only to send you the articles I publish here on ARealGreenLife.com, and articles on related topics that I write for other websites or publications.

You can unsubscribe at any time using the unsubscribe button at the bottom of every email I send. I'll never send you anything without your permission.


Why do I build a mailing list and encourage subscribers?
​​​Readers chase the echoes away and make the work of writing worthwhile.

​Writers need readers, otherwise it gets awfully echoey in the writing chamber.

You, ​as a subscriber, help keep the echoes away and keep me feeling like my work is worthwhile.

​In writer-speak, its called building a "writer ​platform" – committed readers make up the ​platform ​upon which a writer can showcase their work. 

If or when I write a book in addition to this blog, a solid platform will also help me publish and sell it.


About ​the content ​on ARealGreenLife

​The content written here is not "mine," in the sense that everything ​I write is informed by everything I've read, seen, heard and experienced.

Everything is connected; no-one writes or creates anything in a vacuum, all by themselves. (There is a flip side to this, ​which I'll ​mention in ​a minute.)

​ ​​

​​Share in pers​on when you can, and hug when you share
​Accompany your digital shares, with a physical hug whenever you can.

If you share my work, I have two requests to make of you.

First, please share ​in person—include eye contact and a hug—before you share ​on social media. ​

Is there no-one near by who you could hug? Get off your device and go find someone! ​


Acknowledge the source
​​​​Please link back to ​ARealGreenLife if you share my work

​There is of course a flip side to what I said above ​about no-one writing or creating all by themselves. Like everyone who ​labors ​to bring something forth to share with the world, ​I do ​work ​my tail off, ​alone, for long hours. ​

I work on this website somewhere between 3 and 7am, most mornings, before I start my "day job" of full time mothering, homeschooling, gardening, and farming. 

So the second thing I ask of you when you share, given how hard I have worked to bring you this content, is to please acknowledge where it came from with a link back to the source.

Your support in this way will mean the world to me.
