I'm a very novice blogger. So I'm taking the time to learn how to create a good blog. So I'm working from the bottom up, testing various themes, creating menus, etc. I would like to work on my blog without the public being able to see it while I'm working on it. Ideally, I would like to have a coming soon page up with maybe a countdown or a simple under construction page would work. That way people that land on the blog wouldn't see the work in progress, but they would see a note saying under construction or coming soon. Meanwhile I could see the development of my blog as I'm working on it. Is this possible?
The blog I need help with is mrsrealtalk.wordpress.com.
