I've just spotted a notice on the account bit of my blog saying that I need to let you know about the cookies that Blogger and Google use on my blog.
Literally all I know about cookies on computers as opposed to the American word for biscuits is that it's a tiny text file that gets put on your computer to let the site know that you've been to the site and which pages you've seen on the site.
That's literally the extent of my knowledge though... have a word with a friendly computer expert if you want to know more!
This is what prompted this post:
