Going Private

I need some help and thoughts on changing my blog to a private blog. I've been thinking about it for a bit ... but am not 100% decided either way. Recently I've had some RANDOM comments from people that I don't know. Also, I have followers of what appears to be nobody -- just computer generated followers. I'm not sure. I'm ok with people reading my blog -- I like to go and read others blogs that I don't necessarily know -- and let's be honest. I am MORE LIKELY to read YOUR blog if it's not private because then I see the updates. For those of you that DO have private blogs ... what are your thoughts? Anyone else in this same sort of limbo? HELP PLEASE :)

I have a lot of private blogs on my sidebar that still come to the top when they are updated. I don't think it matters that much one way or the other. Maybe make your family blog private, but leave your other blogs open...

DO IT!!!! I would not have it any other way. I get to regulate who looks at my families pictures and our updates to be sure that no creeps are stealing my pictures and such. But I am a VERY paranoid person :)

I totally understand....kinda freaks me out too. I even got an email about my blog (because I don't allow anonymous comments on the blog). Weird. You could switch yours to that at least, so either you preview comments before they post or not allow anonymous commentors.

If you think about it every day, then it's something you should do. We'll probably be going private in a year or so.

I did because the thought of random people looking at my family pictures kind of freaked me out. If I trusted everyone in the world, I wouldn't care...but there are some very scary monsters out there. Ultimately, it's up to you, though...BTW..I've actually updated my blog...he he he.
