Opinions Wanted

Because I can’t leave well enough alone, I have been considering switching themes for this blog.

Naturally, not wanting to mess up this blog with a switch that I would regret, I created a private blog that mirrors this blog.  That way, I can try out different themes without messing up this blog.

At the moment, I am trying out the new Oxygen template and currently would like some feedback on how my site looks using it.  The mirror site can be seen here.  I want to hear anything about the site, good and bad.

Please leave any feedback you have on this post, or through my feedback page.

Thank you.

Another Question to the Audience

Remembering passwords

Remembering passwords (Photo credit: hardeep.singh)

I have three posts on here that I have put passwords on.  At the time I wrote each, I felt that they were deeply personal.  But, by the same token, I did not put in a whole lot of thought into what the passwords were.  Anyone who could figure out the passwords (and, again, the passwords were not all that cryptic) could actually see the posts.

Anyhow, I’ve been thinking about these posts and wondering if it is really helping me to keep these posts semi-private, to the point that I’ve been thinking of removing the password protection and opening them up for anyone to read.

Thus, I once more turn to you, the audience.  Should I remove the passwords and make these posts open for anyone and everyone to read?  Or, should I keep the passwords in place, making the posts available only to those I give the passwords to… or whoever figures out the passwords (again, they are not all that difficult to figure out)?

Question for the Regulars

As you undoubtedly know, I have a couple of side blogs for my writing which I, in all honesty, have not kept up.  Thus, I pose this question to you.

Should I slowly merge these two blogs into this one?  Those blog posts would replace regular entries on this one until the posts are used up.

On Password Protection

It does seem odd that WordPress.com would offer the ability to password protect a blog entry, or even to make it private.  I mean, the whole purpose of posting a blog entry is to make what you are thinking public, right?

2011 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 1,300 times in 2011. If it were a cable car, it would take about 22 trips to carry that many people.

Okay, so you have blown out your creativity with the National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo).  Yet, you still have a blog that you feel some degree of obligation of maintaining.  What do you do?  Here are a few suggestions that I have resorted to.
