How Do I Edit A Blog Without Having to Refresh It?

    I’ve heard there is some wordpress plug-in or add-on that allows you to make edits to your blog without having to constantly refresh it for everyone to see. I would like to be able to make edits to a potential blog without having someone come across it while its in an incomplete state.

    For the record, I am not hosting the blog myself, but on I know I could avoid this problem by hosting on my own server, etc, but I am just too cheap. Does anyone know how I could solve this problem? Any answer would be very appreciated.

    I have not made a blog yet. What I want to know is, if I do make a blog, what plug-in or add-on can I download that will allow me to make edits to its appearance, theme, set-up, etc., without my having to do multiple saves for me to see the results. I want to be able to see what a particular theme would look like on my page, but don’t want people to see my ‘tests’ or ‘experiments’ with the page, only the finished product.

    If you want to experiment with your wp.COM blog but not have the public see those experiments, then just open another free wp.COM blog. Export the data from your public site, import it into your (private) test blog, and experiment to your heart’s content.
