Hey, before you scroll around any further, I just wanted to make a quick note about my active analytics tools in case you accepted the cookie policy without reading it.

Tool: TruConversion

Status: Active

Description: To better understand and optimize its user-experience, this site uses a heatmap and recording tool called TruConversion for session insights. Even though IP addresses are anonymized and most of the information it tracks is time, device, and country-specific only, it’s still worth knowing that sessions are recorded and heatmaps are generated based on site interaction. I use this tool to see which of my pages are user-friendly and which ones are overcomplicated and frustrating: a bit like receiving user feedback without the user having to describe the experience for me. And it helps me a lot when you use the site as you normally would, exploring the pages most interesting to you and ignoring the ones that aren’t, letting TruConversion run its systems without interference. However, I also understand that some people, despite being anonymous already, don’t want their activities monitored, even for user-experience improvements. So, if that’s you, I wanted to invite you to opt-out of the session recording. By opting out, you not only end session recording here, but you block any other site that uses TruConversion from recording also (as long as you don’t clear your cookie history). If you choose to opt-out, please click this link and follow TruConversion’s opt-out instructions, then refresh this page. Session recording and heat-mapping will stop. Likewise, if you want to know more about what TruConversion does before you make your decision, you can check out its product page here. Thanks.

Meet the Author

Jeremy Bursey

Jeremy Bursey is the author of many short stories, novels, and other things he no longer remembers writing, each covering topics and genres that differ from what he had written previously because why not? He holds a bachelor’s degree in English from the University of Central Florida, which he’s been paying for since the ‘90s, and currently works as a writing tutor, so he, like that organ grinder who severs his business relationship with his pet monkey, will pay for it indefinitely. He appreciates feedback for anything he posts, and he hopes you’ll read it—any of it—now, preferably.
