If you have sent me your email address so that you can still see my blog, I just wanted to be sure you know how to see it once I go private. I believe the way it works is...I will enter the email addresses, Blogger will send you an invite to my blog to your email, and you have to click on the link in the email to view it (for the first time).
Then, the posts I do wont automatically pop up in your feed. With private blogs, you have to actually click on the title of the blog in your reader and then it will say "You have followed this URL, but we couldn't find a feed for it. Please check that the URL is correct:" But it will have the link to my blog underneath that and so you just click on it and it should take you to my blog. Or you can just save my blog address in your favorites and check it every once in a while.
I'm not sure how it works for those who already get my blog posts sent directly to your email...hopefully they still send.
I know it sucks, and it is confusing, but hopefully you can figure it out so you can still read it! Alright, I just wanted to post this so that you know how it works once my blog is private. Thanks again for hanging in there with me!
And if all else fails and like, nobody can find me and it gets too frustrating? I might just give up and go public again because I'm beginning to second guess this whole thing, haha.
