A few weeks ago my brother and sister-in-law announced that they were making their blog private.
People have a lot of reasons for making their blogs private and I understand and sympathize with all of their varying reasons.
But I can't lie.
I hate every single "We're going private" announcement like it's a glass of milk gurgling around in my empty lactose-intolerant stomach. I miss not being able to subscribe to their posts anymore and I'm sad to say that the private blogs are the first ones I "forget" about as soon as life gets busy.
Matt and Karey, though, have found a new way. A brilliant plan that I'm hoping that the whole private world wide web will soon embrace.
Basically what they did is they created a new private blog and transferred all the posts over to it from their old blog.
Then they took off all the posts off the old blog, but kept it functional and told everyone to stay subscribed to it.
Now every time they make a post on their new top-secret blog, they also make a post on their old non-private blog with a link and a teaser to the secret blog.
It's perfect. They keep all their exceeding cuteness top secret and their update teasers get pushed right up to the top of my subscriptions, so they don't get forgotten. :)
