No Cookies Here!

This site has no cookies, ads, or popup promotions.

Cookies enable tracking, supposedly to enhance a user’s experience. Actually, they only benefit the website owner. A website host provides plenty of stats without cookies, such as the number of visitors and the pages that they viewed. Does one need more?  My portfolio site shows off my work and allows people to contact me. None of that should involve setting cookies.

Ads. Terrible things. The minuscule revenue they generate, if they make anything at all, look completely unprofessional. A portfolio site should sell  yourself and not a credit card, diet pill, or software. A free site with ads is no bargain.

Popup promotions. I’d be happy if you read my blog. So, I won’t annoy you with a  solicitation in the middle of your reading. There’s no call for that with an online resume or portfolio. I think it best if your creativity is calmly, quietly displayed. There’s too much hustle on the internet to add to it.
