I'd like to have a private, password-protected blog, viewable only by people to whom I give the password. Is there a way to do this?
If not, it seems like the best alternative would be to select "I would like my blog to be visible only to users I choose", create a user name, and make that the only user name with access. Instead of giving people a password to view the blog, I'd give them the login and password to sign on to this dummy user name, and they could then see the private blog-- which is less convenient than simply entering a password.
Can I password-protect a blog? And if not, is there a better alternative than the one I described?
Thanks! (And I apologize if this has been covered-- I looked around and couldn't find anything.)
The blog I need help with is halphillipsfamilytree.wordpress.com.
