Uh oh! What's going on? Anything I should be worried about? You know I am a crazy person about this public blog stuff and trying to be private.
go to your blog's settings and there is a section under "PERMISSIONS" called "blog readers" and you can set it to yourself or a list of trusted people using their email addresses. Are you getting just too many "fake" posts? I get about 100 a week!!!
Thanks Rachael! I am not having a problem with fake post! 100 is a lot! I barely get those on my blog! Thanks for sharing the instructions.
Can I pick and choose who I want to be access my blog? It seems like a lot to ask people for their email addresses to invite them since it is so many bloggers
Yes, you can invite people to view your blog.
What in the world? 100 a week? That is crazy!!
Oh no! What happened?
I don't want to shut it down, I really want to include people who we have traveled the journey together.
I hope you don't have to! That is horrible that you even have to think about it :-/
I hope everything is ok... I'd hate for you to stop blogging and/or delete your blog. I've seen several that can only be viewed by people that have been invited.
Yes, I was wondering how people set it as private with only the people I want to view it.
Do you know how that works, M?
It looks like you have two options for privacy...Option #1 - Only blog authorsYour blog is restricted so that only blog authors can read it. Other visitors to this blog will not be able to read any posts; instead they will get a message stating that this is a private blog.Option #2 - Only these readersYou can restrict your blog to only readers you choose. However, these readers will need to log in before reading your blog, adding an extra step. We'll save your readers list for you, so you can switch back at any time.It looks like with option #1 only people that are authorized authors on your blog can see it, whereas with option #2 you'd have to individually invite people to access your blog.
Perfect M!! Thank you so much!! With option #1 with blog authors--does this mean they have blog accounts too. Can I use option #1 and select my blog authors?
No I think that means anyone that you authorize to post on YOUR blog. Like I could give my boyfriend authorization and then he could post on my blog.
You should be able to select a list of people, but yes, they would have to provide their email addresses for you to grant access. And yes, when I was blogging consistently, I would get about 10-15 spam comments per day, so just under 100 a week!! They have calmed down, but man, they are anointing!!
wow, that is over kill! Thanks for your support!!
Noooo.... don't leave us!!!
No, I just to add some private settings for the people that I invite to the blog! Just trying to get the information straight before I do it. We were on the same journey together *colette* I would never leave that precious group out of the circle. We had a great time together and still do.
Just dont forget my email address!
Hey Joiful, love that picture of you!! I hope I don't have to do the email version! Ugghhhh but just in case I do, please email me your email. :-)
What happened??? Ryan stalkers around again?
Oh No Brian, no Ryan stalkers, something different that I found distasteful!! Nice to see you!
Is it spam comments you are getting? Because you can set comments to be approved by you before they are published. I'm a little confused about what is actually wrong.
I agree - I hope it's not something too terrible! I know some people have complained about their SR bothering them about their blogs and has caused them to go private. But your blog has definitely been helpful for us, so we hope you don't completely disappear!
Hi, I created a FB group to help people in the build process and to share pictures and ideas about the Ryan Homes Rome Model. https://www.facebook.com/groups/RyanHomesRome/
