What are the rules pertaining to DID and blogs? Are alters allowed to post in my blog?

Thanks for asking us about this. In general, all board guidelines apply to the blogs as well. We've discussed your question, and we feel that allowing members to post as alters would be very confusing to those reading, which often leads to members feeling less able to offer support as they aren't sure what to say. You are however more than welcome to post a link in your signature to an externally-hosted blog, where you can allow your alters to post. Let us know if you need any further clarification, or have any further questions.

I guess it depends what the member wants to use the blog for as well..as to whether that would appeal to them

I wanted to answer your question too about private entries on blogs - we have discussed this, and we feel that it is less confusing and safer for all if we extend board/blog guidelines to private entries as well. Though we don't moderate the blogs the way we do the board, if something came up that was in violation of the guidelines we would follow it up with the member regardless of whether the entry were public or private, due to moral, ethical, or legal reasons, so we think it's best just to keep a standard set of rules for both types of blog entries.
I hope that answers your question - let us know if you need any more clarification :)/>
