TheHost.US: June 2011: "Tumblr Introduces Password Protected Blogs
Tumblr Introduces Password Protected Blogs: "Tumblr provides users with an option to password protect their blogs when they create a new one. Just select the checkbox next to “Password protect this blog” and provide a password for it.
You can password protect existing blogs by going to the customize page for your blog.
What We Would Like to See
This is definitely a great way for people to create private blogs and share them with only a select few, however, it would be also be nice if they could add support to password protect individual posts instead of the entire blog.""
