Super Cool Private Club Blog
Just to let you know...I'm planning to de-privatize this private club blog. Although I said from the start that this would be part of the deal, I want to make sure no one has any objections.
I won't do anything with it for a few days or so, to give you all a chance to weigh in if you feel the desire or need.
I've asked this question here and there and always made a joke out of it. But seriously, I really have been trying to figure out what good a private club blog is. Lexie offered some great ideas in a response on the Questions/Answers page, and I wanted to unbury her comment and repost it here, as an entry, to maybe g...
This is to see if she can post it as a draft to one of my other blogs. If she can post it as a draft there, we'll assume she can also post it as a public entry...

This is where Lexie is going to say something to graciously welcome our new members when they arrive here saying "What am I doing here? Why is there a big pink blog listing? What club?"
In the meantime, you're stuck with my version of welcoming you to the supercool private club blog, which goes like this: Welcome to t...
If you are able to read this entry, you're already a member, whether you like it or not. You don't have to do anything else to remain a member except NOT tell Siren you don't want to be a member anymore.
The way you got to be a member was I just put your name on a list of private club members (in the blogs section...
The primary mission of this blog is to figure out what, exactly, it means for a blog to be a private club blog, and to understand why anyone would ever want to create or belong to one.
Secondary missions include:
Bragging about our respective superpowers
Feeling slightly superior to ev...
Technical information about what it means for a blog to be a private club blog.
Sort-of interesting facts about private club blogs:
It's exactly like a regular blog, only you have a narrowly-defined audience. It's a blog only the people you listed can see. Like...a private poetry reading or something.
The blog creator has the...
Hey look everyone...I am the Queen now! Only my name is not Siren, it is Lexie. And my only superpower is to welcome all of you to the blog...ooh wait a minute! I can do that no...
