I am going private....

...with my blog.  I have had two scares within the past week, one involving my daughter.  If you want to follow my private blog, please email me and I will add you to the list.  I am very disheartened.  If you have any suggestions about Blogger settings or the best way I can achieve this process, please share with me.

I am very sad about this.  I will not be able to participate in any link parties, and I'm sure there will be other issues I have not thought about as well.

I will not post again until Friday, and my blog will be private by then. I will still follow {most} of you, and I hope some of you will continue to follow my private blog.

Until next time...

Blessings!

  5. I've enjoyed reading you're blog! Found you through Mamarazzi's linky parties. It's a huge fear of mine that someone would threaten my kids. I've tried not to disclose our location for that reason. I would love to be added to your list. Jennylyn_96@yahoo.com

    I certainly understand why you came to your decision. Please add me to your list of followers. You will still be able to have fun with your blog, being creative and sharing your tablescapes, recipes and book reviews. You'll always have the option of changing back if you decide to later.

  9. Oh dear! This doesn't sound good at all. When I worked at the preschool I had a private blog here on blogger that was invitation only. I gathered the email addresses of the parents in the class and sent the invites top join. Pease add me to your list, and I am so sorry you are having a difficult time right on the heels of other stress. Xoxox

  10. oh Ricki this is why I had to close my other blog down and go private for a while before reopening under a different name.
    It really hurt my business but when it comes to our children nothing else matters.
    People are creepy out there and it is even more scarier not knowing who is looking without commenting or following.
    Good luck with everything.

  18. Ricki Jill,this sort of stuff really bothers me,it is so scary,I had someone comment on blog the other day that was not very nice,so I'm about to do the same as you go private,after all I don't blog for $$$ it is strictly fun for me,and I don't have a page full of sponsers(none to be exact),so going private sounds real interesting to me,let me know how to do this and please let's you and I continue to stay in contact.

  26. I am so sorry to hear that. Yes I want to follow your blog, please add my name to your list. I can't imagine someone doing that to you. You have a wonderful blog here. I can understand the way you feel though.

  27. So, so sad that this had to happen to you, of course I want to follow you, somethingniceandpretty(at)hotmail(dot)com

  28. I follow you now, I would love to follow the private blog. But maybe you can just change things about this blog to make it more anonymous? Like don't use your real name or give too many details about yourself? I don't give my real name on my blog, and I don't give the link to anyone I know in real life, and I don't link my blog to my facebook account. Hope everything works out for you!

  29. RJ,
    Can't imagine what it was that happened to make you close down your blog in this way, I thought that all the bad anonymous comments got caught by blogger and went into the spam folder?
    I would hate not to be able to follow your blog so please add me to your private list, I'll send an email confirmation.
