"Do you make all of your posts public?" is a great question that Scott Hayes addresses in this Blog. Should you go "Members Only", or should you make your Blog Posts "Public"?
The Consensus seems to be, make all of your Blog Posts Public. A rare exception might be a personal discussion between you and fellow ActiveRainers, or a private matter such as a prayer request for a Member.

Todays online Raincamp was very informative. Work obligations kept me from participating in much of it, but what I saw, I liked. Fortunately, I believe it will be recorded, and available soon. I was able to hear part of Katerina Gasset's presentation, which covered several subjects. One item that Katerina suggested, was making almost all of your blog posts public. In the past, I haven't done this, as I didn't realize the importance of doing so.
How Much To Make Public
Katerina and others (yes, that's you Charita Cadenhead), make a good point about taking posts public. I was reluctant, because some of what I write, comes from anecdotes in my real estate life, and include client details, and those of my colleagues. But most of our Members Only posts could be of some interest, and can add to that Google juice if taken public. Katerina made other points about comments, AR centric posts and other things which can be found on the webinar.
A good task, may be to go through some old posts, and see which ones can be made public. I for one, will go through a month per day, and see which posts I can make public.
So do you make most of your posts public?
