I have a friends-only blog on LJ/DW (my friends are spread between the two so I crosspost, which is vaguely annoying- my personal life really isn't interesting enough to warrant duplication!)
I like many things about using wordpress better than I do using the above blogging sites. However, I have many friends who I would not still be in contact with if I had not used Livejournal and more recently Dreamwidth. I would not want to lose contact with them now.
Can OpenID be used to grant access and allow people to subscribe to a basically private journal here, and for me be granted access to my friend's journals, so that I can quit this crossposting nonsense and just have my blog here?
If so, how is this done?
If not, any alternative suggestions? Getting everyone to move with me at once isn't an option, unfortunately!
The blog I need help with is customart.wordpress.com.
