Just reach out to us. Let’s talk about what you want to do. It’s probably going to be fine.


Privacy is important.

We do not track, or use any hidden methods of yanking your information. We do use basic WordPress analytics which are subject to the Privacy Policy of Automattica Inc.

The only personal information this website takes is what you give it when leaving comments, or subscribing. When you leave a comment, your IP address is recorded.

We will never sell or distribute any of your information.


Linking policies are categorically evil.

Please link freely to the Room Escape Artist, as often as you wish, so long as you don’t have a linking policy that prohibits linking to your site. Linking policies are completely insane and we will not abide them.

If you have a restrictive linking policy on your website you’re either stupid or evil. Either way we want nothing to do with you.

Attribution for Photos & Sources

We do our best to properly attribute photos and sources. If we got something wrong, please contact us about it and we’ll rectify the situation.


This is a personal blog. We’d appreciate leaving lawyers out of everything. Seriously contact us if you have a problem.

However should you feel litigious, we give you fair warning that our lawyer is devilishly smart, and we’re a “fall on my sword” kind of couple. So we promise that legal engagements will be long and horrifically brutal.

Thanks for reading.
