I need a thread or group or blog where access is very controlled

    There is a smallish group of [other site] folks–current members, former members etc. who need a safe place to process their treatment and experiences on that forum.

    The primary purpose is not to blackwash that site or it’s founder but to have a safe place to process the emotions etc. without risking their membership there–for those still members.

    So, would it be possible under my current WordPress blog or should I set up an entirely new one. And what control of membership options are available for such a situation? We’d want it membership by invitation only.

    You can set up a private blog and then you can ask users to register at http://worpdres.com/signup/?user=1 and, once they have accounts, (or if they do already), you can add them to the access list at Settings > Privacy in your dashboard via their WordPress.com username.

    I have the impression from your reply, Hanni,

    That I need to start a new blog at WordPress.com in order to have it private.

    Is that correct?

    Or can I have a section of my current blog private?

    It might be easier to start a separate private blog for your private sections, but can make select posts and pages private following these guides:
