I didn't want to have to make it private but I didn't feel save having it public. There is a follower of my site who lives quite close to me... within walking distance. I don't know who this person is, but they check my blog multiple times per day. I have pictures of myself and personal information on here - the last thing I need is someone using it against me or to hurt me in anyway.
So at this point, my readers are 1 cousin and my man... pathetic I know. But I didn't feel safe having even an online stalker... not if they live or work so close to our home.
