I just jumped in on an interesting Glitter discussion about anonymity and blogging. As I’ve said here before, I like my visitors to know that I’m a real person with a real name and identity. Sure, this means I have to practice a little self-censorship every now and then, but I feel it’s a worthwhile trade-off. I also just find that I enjoy reading blogs about “real people” more. Just about every site on my links list down there is written by someone that I can identify by name and location. They’re my friends. Why would I want to read about someone completely name-less? As far as I’m concerned, that’s what novels are for.
