After I made my blog private last month, it didn't last very long before I re-opened it to any readers. Several of you have been inquiring as to why I changed my mind.
What can I say? I just can't decide what to do!!
On one hand, I love the security of having it privitized. I know who is reading my thoughts and viewing my pictures. It gives me a sense of control. I know there are no unwelcome lurkers silently hovering around (and yes, there are such things as welcome lurkers -- those who are innocently reading just because they enjoy what I have to say, not because they have any ulterior motives).
But on the other hand, I keep thinking of all of the wonderful friendships I have made via blogging: Pam, Melanie, Leeann and HolleeAnn to name just a few. If I close my blog off, what other future friendships will I be missing out on?
So I am left with that and don't know how to proceed from here. This is where you can come in. I'm really looking for opinions. I will also put a poll on my side bar, but that's just for a general idea...I'd still love to hear your actual opinions -- including reasons for or against. And if you don't feel comfortable leaving your opinions in the comment section for everybody to read, please drop me an email to give me your thoughts.
I'm not saying I will necessarily go with the majority -- but I would really appreciate any help I can get in guiding me to my final decision.
