I've been toying lately with making this blog private. Although I'm approaching 300 posts and 10,000 hits to my blog, and have actively put my blog out there for the whole world to see, I might be having a change of heart. My first step was to move my blog to the new Blogger beta. I don't think this move changes much on the readers end (does it, readers?). Blogging in this mode will eventually allow me to only allow readers that I choose.
There is still a part of me who believes my blog contributes positively to the worlds of those who read it and I would like to be able to do something that remains public. I am strongly considering making a new blog, which will be public (and therefor less personal). I am also unsure if my current blog, when made private, will have new posts on it or if I will only post on a new blog and maintain my current one as an archive.
If you're a reader and have an opinion one way or another, let me know. I think I'll be making a decision fairly soon as to what I'd like to do, and in the mean time will start building a new blog just in case I want to use it.
