I have begun setting up a websight to offer my short stories for people to read. The ones I like but won't probably ever be "published" for profit. I read somewhere that one option for seeking publishing is to password protect your work, place it on your webpage and when a publisher wants to see the full work its available for them to review, just send them the password. Is this common? I only found it suggested one place(and can't remember where). That right there does cast some doubt.
