How do I hide the blog from the public so I can just play around with it? Thanks! The blog I need help with is aishagriffith.wordpress.com.

You can make your blog private by going to your Dashboard, and navigating to Settings > Reading. Under Site Visibility, you can select “I would like my site to be private, visible only to users I choose” and that way anyone who tries to visit your blog will be asked to log in. You can also make individual blog posts private, by either making them private, or setting a password to view them. You can find out more about that at the following support article: http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/post-visibility/ Since you’re new to WordPress, I’d also suggest you check out the http://learn.wordpress.com/ July 21, 2013 at 3:28 am #1359407 aishagriffithMember Thank you!!
