Thanks to everyone who gave feedback re private blogs and private posts.
WordPress’s guidance is a tad unclear, so I am going to experiment with posts requiring a password. I think it’s the same password for all password protected posts, that’s something that’s should become clear.
If you would like to be given the password, please leave a comment here. If you are one of those ‘silent’ readers who never comments who i don’t know, that will i’m afraid exclude you.
