Just wondering about setting up a blog, I think I’d like to set one up to follow my dd progress but I’m not 100% sure as I don’t want to focus on all negative stuff… I also have a young son maybe the blog should be looking at both? Also can you set your blog to invite only as I don’t want an open forum so to speak.

You can set a Blog (using Blogger) to ‘invite only’ or to ‘non-searchable’ (so won’t show up if someone tries to search for it). I have both types! The ‘invite only’ method works fine- it sends an invite to the invited person’s e-mail who then accepts the invite, but invitees must have a Google email account (G-mail) so check that out first with whoever you want to invite to it. As for what/who you Blog about, I’d say that all depends on your audience and/or your reasons for Blogging (is it to inform family/friends? or a more personal journal for yourself…?)

...and you can also control ‘Comments’- allow them or not etc.

Right thankyou moggy, that’s interesting gives me food for thought smile

I post the negative stuff too, but nothing that I would be upset for them to read some day.  I also copy accross the activities-type posts to a blog that’s just for them as a record of their childhoods (when I get round to it and usually in large batches lol).  smile
