    No idea what I’m doing other than trying to establish a blog to hold writing for a class that the teacher and class can read. Not public.

    um, er, and how does one set up a test/private blog? I think I actually succeeded in setting up a blog somehow, and figured out how to post something, but now how does one make it private or only available to teacher and fellow students?
