Monday's Muddle

A muddle is a miscellany, an unorganized mixture of various dissimilar items or elements.

Ever wonder how they pick which ads you see online? It's marketing data collected about us every day by many entities. Most businesses collect some data about you to support their marketing efforts. It can come from commercial brands gathering information on their clients. These practices are typically described in their privacy policy. Data can come from publicly available sources such as city or state records or census data, or it can come from companies like Acxiom who collect and aggregate it from surveys, registrations, purchases, postings, etc. For organizations to make relevant offers to you, they need data to identify products and services you might be interested in. Well, I saw on our local news the other night that you can go to Acxiom and see what data they have on you and 9 times out of 10 they have something wrong. You can edit the data so at least you will get the ads that might interest you. And you can pick and choose which data they can use to choose your ads. Your going to get them no matter what. Go HERE to check your data and edit it.

My sentiments exactly!


  1. I especially enjoyed the post on reading children's books. We have a collection of children's book from when my son was younger, and I have been meaning to read some of them.

    1. I haven't read many children's books Tracy. other than Anne of Green of Gables series. I know a lot of people do though. I'll have to give it more of a try!

  2. I am muddling through your muddles right now...they are usually interesting bits and bobs that I like to tuck away!

  3. Love the towel pattern. I'm hoping to try that out for Christmas gifts.

    1. I really love this pattern Tami. It's so much cleaner looking then the one I've made in the past. It will make nice gifts!
