...........Yes......That's Me !
I'm sure I am not the right person to give you the right information but I think you can not set it private, unless you specify who can have access to your site.Have a nice day... hugs
Hugs you back, Belita.
This is Blogger, right? I've been looking for how to set it private too, but so far, not found out.
Shayna seems to know and Mitch too, but maybe too restrictive if talking part in other groups? Suppose one could make separate pages for that, I just did a separate page where I downloaded all my old Multiply blogs, seems it has not interfered with my main blog this time. Shuh, was so worried, it would mess it up again.
mmmhhhmmm,not nice, not nice at all, had no idea, all and sundry could just peep in.
It's no different on Multiply unless your page is set to 'friends' only. The only difference is Blogger are good enough to show you the info, Multiply does not, unless you add a program like flag-counter. I've had visits to my Multiply page from about two thirds of all the countries in the world. So what?
I wouldn't worry about it my dear one. It is not as if you post anything that is illegal is it? Anyone looking in my page would be bored to tears anyway. I must check mine out. I'm sure I saw in my "settings" where you can change that. I will go back and look.
doubt whether anything I say is illegal and we do have freedom of speech, so...
GOT IT:Click on Design click on settings, the basic settings will come up.click on Privacy, change if you want to.ALSOclick on blog readers, there you can choose what you want. You can click on the one to make it private but just be aware it will only be people that know you and blog with you that can visit you. Might be too restricting and interfere with posting in the groups you are in???Huggles.
If you choose that option, you also have to input the e-mail address for each person you want to authorise to read your posts. And as Shayna points out, it can also have an affect on posting to groups.
is that what you did with Picture This, Mitch ?
Shuh, Shayna really has it ! Wow, girl, you now a web fundi> Thank you for your trouble, will think on it.
Mitch is right..... changing your blog to totally private, requires the email of every contact and no one new can ever visit....two pieces of info I pick up are: Never click on those traffic sites.... some may not be where you want to go... and most of the foreign ones are actually various 'search engine' researchers that are being paid to search out various words in the blogs.... unless you get hundreds of hits, the few you get are [like Mitch said] no different than being viewed by people that are not signed into multiply.... just 'google' yourself [ your xply used ID].... We do not have the intermediate option of friends only here on blogger.... it's all or nothing....
I did Google myself, goodness, imagine my friends or family doing it and landing up here, me maybe better watch my language and censor my blogs LOL
that is why we play on blogster... lol.... any thing or any photo you post here on blogger is open to all....
don't like blogster at all. Tried it, not for me, I am not awake anyway when you guys have chat parties. LOL
Personally, I don't really care who views my page. They can be from the Moon, Mars or Alpha Centauri for all I care. As long as they don't spam my page.
suppose you are right, who cares, just me better be a bit more careful about personal information?
I agree with Mitch. As i said earlier, you are not doing anything illegal. I tried blogster and didn't like it at all.
I see it like this. If I want a complete privacy then I do not blog, be it on blogster, Blogspot, ipernity, Baby boomers, or whatever. I just do not blog. I do not do privacy, as I don't have anything to hide from the public on my blogs. If I have something private then I take a phone in my hand, make an e-mail or do a chat somewhere in cyberspace. It might sound hard, but if you want privacy then you are in the wrong place on a blogging site. This also goes for FB. I just use some basic common sense, and everything goes well. So what's the problem?The only exception is photos on a photo site. There again the majority of my photos are public, just my family and personal friends are fixed at private, which is a normal circumstance when involving other people. There again, absolutely no problem. Just a matter of common sense.
not a privacy issue as such , was just very surprised, I mean Russia ? Who would anyone in Russia be remotely interested in what I have to say? My very first blog experience was on Multiply, where I always could see who looked at my page and if unhappy with someone could change privacy or block the person............This thingie is puzzling me........I have friends in Australia, New Zealand and India, but that don't show at all ?? UK don't show either, neither does Switzerland for that matter, so you , Mitch and Shayna never saw this page????
It may show tomorrow, I think it takes 24 hours. Russia - well most of the spam we get comes from somewhere in the middle of the Siberian wilderness or Ukraine or whatever. They are profis at messing up the computer world. I have never really bothered to look that much, but I have a widget on my site and I see where my visitors come from. Most come from Auvenier in Switzerland which is me.
Still don't make sense, Pat, seeing the demographics of the views over a certain period on the whole blog, I think they got the wrong info somewhere. It does not matter in the broader spectrum of life, was simply totally nonplussed by the graphs. LOL
International fame already? Gee, can I have your autograph? Lol, I didn't even realize there was a button to push to see all of that. I am too chicken to touch much over here, afraid I will someone get stuck on that google+ merry-go-round thing again..ack!
LOL..........it will cost you *pushes nose in air*..........careful with those buttons, took me ages to get off that Google+, had to delete all and start over again, now is working fine, fine and is happy of sorts...*sniff*.....not Multiply for sure.......... sometimes new beginnings might be blessings though?
