The story of why my blog is now for only readers that I approve of...

Many years ago, just a few months after Dan and I were married, we had a gathering of friends at our house. I went into the kitchen to get the food ready and Dan came in to help. Being that we were still newlyweds I pinched his rear end on his way past me and one of our friends saw me do it. Ever since then I have been known as "Grabby" amongst this group of friends. Childish yes, but I didn't mind and lately hadn't heard the name for years. Then yesterday I get a forwarded text message from one of the group..."how will we live without grabblog?" I texted back, confused, what was a grabblog? Got no answer, then it dawned on me...that was the nickname they had given my blog, grab blog, and they were referring to the fact that I had not updated in a long time. I was furious...if they were making up stupid names then they were obviously making fun of me and what I had written. I knew one of the people from this forwarded message was reading my blog but I didn't know the other one was. Had they not slipped and forwarded the text to me I never would have known. Until that moment I didn't care who read what I wrote, I even had followers that I had no idea who they were. But that was the final straw, the blog became private and will remain that way.
This morning I received another text from one of the "perpetrators" apologizing for the bad behavior. This person admitted what they had done was wrong, that they were childish and that this person hoped I would forgive. It was also said that this person hoped Dan and I knew that this person is a true friend and at visits and phone calls was not doing either for personal gain or gossip opportunities, but only as a friend. I texted back, thanked for the apology and said that the blog would remain private. If this person wants to know what is going on then ask me.
So that is the story. For those of you reading this I welcome you and hope you continue to read. I will add people as I see fit, and deny as I see fit. I will not release the names of the people that caused this in the first place, I, unlike them, refuse to purposely cause someone grief...so don't ask me. These people are still our friends, and I respect their privacy.
