I have had close to 15 advertisers try to advertise on my blog in the last few weeks. While I have tried a private blog before, it seems more necessary now than it did then. Especially with all of Claire's stats out there for anyone to see.
While I was private, I would have requests left and right for people to be able to view my blog. It only allows 100 people to view it, so I'm setting this up for random people that only want to view it once or twice. For example: if you have a mother in law that loves to share stories with people, but those people don't want a permanent account of view-edge, you can give out this user name and password:
password: to be given out to those who want it (just email me or post your email here so I know who wants it)
Then, whenever someone RANDOM wants to view it, you don't have to wait for me to give them permission to view the blog.
FOR EVERYONE ELSE:
if you would like to be on my permanent viewing list, please post your name or your email address in a comment.
Hopefully this solves the problems I was having of keeping the blog private and also the issues of keeping it open! If you have a better suggestion, let me know. I'd be willing to try it.
I will keep the blog 'open' until May 27th (wink wink).
