Some of my 'invited readers' to my family blog have confessed that they're not sure how to access it since it asks to sign in under your Google account. Let me first assure you getting a Google account is nothing to be afraid of, it's a pretty harmless process. When it asks you to sign in, there's a place where it asks you if you would like to start a Google account, just click on that. The next screen will ask you to provide a username and a password, and to write down the random letters you see in a box. That's pretty much it. Then you just use that username and password when you want to sign on to the new blog. You can also get a Google account by following this link: https://www.google.com/accounts/NewAccount.
Sorry for all the hoops to jump through, but in today's world, if you want to post about anything even semi-personal you just have to be concerned with 'cyber safety'. Hope you all understand.
