For starters, our newest blogs are hosted by Blogger (not our private Google Sites). To learn more about Blogger and starting your own free blog, visit http://www.blogger.com/ (or take tour).
We now have public Blogs for expanded visibility and easier access (FAQ Blogs). Unlike our private web sites, however, a limited number of relatives may post Blogs. To be fair, we are accepting blog authors on a first-come, first-served basis. Since you may wish to post to a public Blog using an anonymous nickname, please understand we are not automatically creating Blogger editing/access for our those who signed-up for our private family blogs.
We encourage your participation, and hope you contribute content.
Another difference is the Blogger guest view. While Blogger Invitees need to sign-in with their Google Account to become a Blog member, they may view the Blog as a guest once for 30 days after we send the invitation. Before expiration of the 30 days, you confirm/accept invitation. At end of 30 days, you may request a temporary extension, however, if we have a waiting list, we may offer the space to another relative. The guest view is a convenient way to check-out the Blog before joining.
