That anyone can add your blog to Bloglovin and that no one can request removal, is just wrong and surely doesn’t comply with many take-down/privacy laws of the US or EU (TBA after next round of work and assignments!). So, if you have a stalker or even just regret posting something identifiable or personal, the world will have the means to find it through Bloglovin. Even when the blog is long gone and deleted altogether, it’s all still there to be Googled leading to Bloglovin. There’s no such thing as not being able to delete, so thank you tumblr, I appreciate it (and hope it doesn’t stop)!
Update: To the people who believe the Bloglovin claim that it’s simply about making the RSS feed public or private (and that I’m a tad confused), I have a blog that no longer exists on a web server and yet, still exists on Bloglovin two years later. That tells me it’s not simply cached or pulled from a live and public RSS feed. I also find it absurd that Bloglovin could/should be the basis for deciding if you allow your RSS feed to be public or not. The real questions, then, are how to make a non-existent blog’s RSS feed private or what does it take for Bloglovin to remove historical posts and blogs?

According to a paper published in the journal Marine Mammal Science, the dolphins wind up as by-catch “in shark nets set around beaches to protect bathers.” Fisheries also pose a threat, as do habitat loss and degradation from coastal development, pollution and climate change. Read more
