SO. Is there any kind of blogging service out there that's free and offers password protection? I remember about 10 years ago I had diaryland, and that had a simple username/password prompt when you went to the page, but they've gone pay-only. It appears you can only password protect Blogger blogs if you already have a gmail account, and I'd rather not do that (although it'd be fun to see who I could get to finally move over to gmail from AOL).
Thanks for any help!
