Things are achanging here on Beautiful Disaster. After problems were discovered running full blogs for people (Security nightmare as it turned out) I’ve come up with a solution. Anyone that wants to blog on the site can talk to me (Zoey) and I’ll give you access to be able to write your own blog posts on here like Becs has. I ask you to keep it life / MI related though.
I will allow people have their own fully private WordPress blog if they can demonstrate how to keep it secure / up to date to me. I may make exceptions if you allow me to have an administrative user on your blog to keep it updated / do security things as necessary. If one full blog gets hacked it puts all the others at risk, even if I did take as many precautions as I could. I would not post on your blog, just install updates and secure it (unless you needed help with plugins. I’d be glad to help you use plugins to add features that you’d like.)
Becs is making changes around the site to help our little site grow and be more popular. One of the things we’re discussing adding is advertising. I personally hate advertising and we’ll make it so logged in users do not see advertisements. You could also run a plugin such as uBlock origin to block ads all over the internet (I do). Advertising money saves me from having to solicit donations for every little thing and will keep us running longer.
