Hiding your blog

Perhaps you just want your own private blog , or perhaps you want to keep it under wraps till it's ready

Just go to Admin > Settings  ›  Basic
and look at the Permissions section near the bottom of the page

In this section you can see the blog authors which may be just you , or other if you have granted others access, each with their different levels of permissions, from Admin to Author

Below this is the Blog readers section where your blog is open to all readers by default.

Blog Readers - Anybody - Edit

You just need to click on the Edit link and choose one of the following

  • Anybody
Your blog is open to all readers by default.

  • Only blog authors
Your blog is restricted so that only blog authors can read it.
Other visitors to this blog will not be able to read any posts; instead they will get a message stating that this is a private blog.

  • Only these readers
You can restrict your blog to only readers that you choose. However, these readers will need to log in before reading your blog, adding an extra step.
We'll save your readers list for you, so that you can switch back at any time.

Choose and Save Only blog authors and then your blog will be completely private to you and your fellow authors (if you have any)

Log out and try and access your blog

You will just see a Google signing in page

Additionally there are some other privacy related settings
