I'm considering making the ol' blog private. That just means you'd have to send me your e-mail address so I could add you as a reader of my blog. I would say that I'm considering doing it in order to be safe and protect my identity and etc.
But mostly I just want to be able to tell stories about people I am not particularly fond of without worrying about them stumbling across my blog someday.
If I made my blog private, would it deter your readership? Thoughts?
