Please advise why bloggers keep going private...........with no warning. What am I missing here?
Yes, I agree that everyone has a right to privacy. Absolutely. But what is up with this? Why have a public blog for so long just to go private so quickly? I follow lots of blogs (way too many), and I admit, I'm only a frequent commentor on a couple.
The thing is, and maybe I'm just being weird, is that after I've followed these journeys, prayed for these families again and again, I almost feel a bit "hurt" that I wasn't given an oppurtunity to introduce myself and ask permission to be included.
Obviously, viewing rights belong to the blog owner, and need to be respected, but I can't help wondering why some batten (sp?) down the hatches with no warning? Maybe it's because I haven't experienced bad things on my own blog; but I don't tend to reveal an excessive amount of personal info, or spew many inflammatory remarks (LOL, despite my intense dislike of the current president, ha ha ha ha). Who knows?
I guess I'll be a more frequent commentor on the blogs I love, and hope to garner an invite if they go private. As far as my own blog goes...........well, for what it's worth ($0.27?) it will stay public. If for some reason I need to "privatize", I will provide notice in advance so that anyone who wants to continue reading can do so.
Blogging gripe over.
