Just a short news item for today. I'm noticing some people are taking their sports blogs private. See, for example, this one and this one. I didn't mention their names, just in case our blogging heroes are going undercover to avoid stalkers. But I'd like to know why they made that choice, if someone knows. (You can e-mail me if you know, and I won't report it if you don't want me too.)
I have wondered if at some point sports blogs will be set to "private" or "protected", thus creating an exclusive community of commenters and blog-writers. It would allow the blog owner to be crazier and feel less concerned about nutty commenters, and the readers would feel privileged to be invited, right? Maybe they'd even pay for the privilege. Just a thought.
