Hi Blogsisters! I'm writing in a bit of a panic here because it seems that someone in my university and college has clued on to my blog and has been sending around my blog URL which has resulted in a flood of people from my university coming in to read my blog.
I know all the arguments about how a blog is subject to this sort of risk of exposure etc etc. However, at the same time, I had kept my blog a pretty private one--i.e. private from anyone in my immediate vicinity and environment--so that it can be my soapbox and small outlet for my writing and reflections on my life and rants... hence the use of a pseudonym as I explained to Elayne Riggs.
Does anyone have any ideas as to how to deal with this problem? The last thing I want is people around me reading about my private thoughts. I know it sounds weird but... well, I'm sure some of you can understand about this. This blog was started as a means for my friends and family who are faraway to keep up to date with what's happening with my life. The last thing I want is to be a target for anyone in my immediate vicinity?
Does anyone know the result of going into Blogger settings to change the URL name? Would this leave me with the same blog (just with a different URL) or would be make my current blog disappear?
I don't want to stop blogging or take down my blog because I'm proud of the writing I'm been producing thus far. However, at this rate, with the URL passed around the university like wildfire, I might have to do that.
If anyone can suggest any solutions i.e. moving it, slapping password on etc and how to implement those solutions, I would greatly appreciate it. In the meantime, to all my current readers amongst the Blogsisters out there, I am not going to post very much for the next few days because I keep feeling like every word I say would incriminate myself...
