    Hi, I’m new to the whole blogging thing and so is my friend. We want to be able to share a blog privately without anyone else being able to read it. If we set the blog to private, is there any way for other people to see/read it? Are there loopholes for other people to read it?

    The blog I need help with is nairobipotsdam.wordpress.com.

    No and no but read on please. The weakest link in the chain of having a “private” blog are your private users. If any of them refer to the blog or post a link to it or to any content in it anywhere on the internet at all then you cover is blown as the fact the private blog exists will be known. However, even if the link is clicked all those who are not official users of the blog see is the notice that it is a private blog and the sign in box.
