Musings

I am pondering moving from invitation only to open access. I have some reservations about this but I would be so much happier in life to read bunches of comments! I would love to know what others think on this topic.

I liked having my open because then people know when you update and can check it when its updated. I just have personal reservations. People I don't want seeing it, otherwise I totally would have stayed open.

oh, I think you might already know what I think about Private Poops! =) I have blogged about this subject before, and have recently thought about revisiting this subject again...because the amount of people that are going to private.
Obviously I don't like people going private because of what Emilee said...you have to go to each individual site and check for updates.
I have met a lot of people through blogging, and they wouldn't have looked at my blog if it is was private. So, I guess I take the good with the bad. There are people I don't want to look at my blog...looking, but there are lots of super cool people that are!

I would love to keep my blog public, because it is fun to get in touch with people from the past. Unfortunately I had a psycho stalker chic so that's why I put mine on private (read my Sep. 18, 2008 post). I think cases like that are rare, but to me it's not worth it. That's my two cents :)

I have two concerns:
1. My job. I have sent people to prison...I have been the referral for people to loose their children. I have made a few people very very angry. What if...
2. Predators. I have worked with them. I know how easy it is to find someone if so inclined. What if.....
I know that both these fears are extremely far reached but what if that one in a million happens?

Can I just say something...delete my comment if you want. ;) They don't need a blog to find you. If they are super stalkers...they probably could pay the 19.99 on one of those sites, and get all your personal info if they really wanted.
I do understand your concern tho! I'll read your blog no matter what!
