Thought since things have changed a lot here on the blog, I should probably put up a ‘sticky’ so that people have an idea of what’s going on. Otherwise, it might be kind of confusing.
I’m Anna. I’ve been blogging since December of 2000, (first Xanga, then everything imported here that WP would transfer). There is a TON in the archives, and up thru July 2015, everything is viewable. I used to blog completely publicly. It was nice for everyone else, but not for me.
These days? I put up a mix of public and protected posts. Pretty much it’s like this: anything homeschool, spiritual, craft-ish, or that I really need to share, is public, and can be viewed by everyone. Everything related to my family, my feelings, our personal activities? It’s all private. Partly because on-line people are just plain vicious and have abused my willingness to be open, and also because people I don’t want having access to my life (IRL) lurk up my blog, and that just doesn’t work for me.
Why protected and not private? Because I do have a handful of friends that I like to share with. So it gives them access, and keeps out the people I don’t want snipping at me (or snooping up my family). Everything on the sidebars is there for use, everything in the homeschool archive is pretty much up to date, and I’ll keep adding to it, as I blog. But not everything is viewable. If it asks for a password, it’s not for you.
Just a heads up, in case there are any questions. :)
All new items will follow this post – this will stay at the top. Theoretically.
