About Us

PigPog is the heady combination of Michael and Sam.

Keeping Up to Date

RSS

The best way is to use our RSS Feed. We loved Google Reader, though, and it’s dying soon, so now we don’t know what to recommend. Feedly seems to be quite popular, but we haven’t used it ourselves.

Amazon

We’re Amazon affiliates, and occasionally link to stuff there. If you want things from Amazon, and you use the links on PigPog, we’ll get a little cut. It won’t cost you any more.

Why ‘PigPog’?

PigPog was a cat. ‘PigPog’ wasn’t his real name, but it was what we called him. He had a fight with a Peugeot. He lost. He died.

When we came to look for a name for our site, it was about the only thing we could think of that was reasonably pronounceable, spellable, and available. It seems to work.

Privacy Policy

It seems a bit over-the-top to have a privacy policy for a personal site, but we have to do it to keep the advertisers happy, so here goes…

We keep logs and statistics to track things like how many people are reading which articles. We don’t track any sort of personally identifying information for this – we don’t know who you are.

The software that runs PigPog, WordPress, uses cookies to manage logins and comments. We don’t use accounts for users, so you should only get a cookie from WordPress if you post a comment.

We use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit our website. These companies may use information (not including your name, address, email address, or telephone number) about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices about not having this information used by these companies, click here.

Now why not go have a real cookie? They’re much tastier.
