what do you guys think about usernames and passwords for sites? are they worth it? i am building a personal site and i want to add content thats not accessable to everyone, but who really wants another username and password to remember?

It depends on how confidential you want the information to stay, and how much you don't mind getting less traffic. Since it's a personal site, it's probably not going to garner a lot of traffic that doesn't know you and that you haven't told about the site, so traffic may not be an issue.

The easiest way to restrict access for you and probably for many of the people you want to give access to is to set the restricted area up so that it just requires entering a password for access and you give everyone the same password, something easy for them to remember.
