    I publish valuable articles on my blog.
    Until now, they have been available to anyone who wishes to download them.
    I should like to add a step whereby anyone who wishes to download the article must give me a few details first (email, name, job)
    How can I do this?

    You could make your posts private. Have a page with titles / summaries of your articles, with a contact page so people would have to email you to receive a copy.
    Or password protect each article; only the titles will be visible; post instructions about contacting you prominently in your sidebar.

    Obviously, people won’t be able to read your blog without contacting you.
    Also, you should run this scheme before Support to be sure you are not violating Terms of Service because it might appear that you are trying to monetize your blog.
