This one is short and I also realize I'm going to tick off about half of my friends with this one - but I don't care. And, if you're truly my friends, you're used to it anyway...
I HATE private blogs!
I don't understand them. I guess it's not so bad once you've signed on and you're already a registered reader but holy crap it's a pain. Besides it being a pain, it takes all the fun out of blog hopping - something I just spent the last hour and a half doing and LOVED every second of it - except for the dumb people who had private blogs, yours were NOT fun to read!
What's there to be afraid of? I'll pay someone $5 if they personally know someone who has had something bad happen to them directly because of their blog. If it's privacy you're after - write in a journal.
Now, I'm not suggesting that I'm going to list my address and social security number on my blog but I just don't get what the big deal is?!?
