I had something else in draft that I was working on, but this thought come to mind as I was surfing the blogs at lunchtime.
I respect the privacy of other bloggers. I am not anonomyous for the simple reason that I am a relative nobody, this blog being my only claim to fame. I am also not anonomyous because I want people to know that I'm a overweight middle aged male who has no desire whatsoever to use my internet presence to cause anyone any harm.
That being said, I realize that some want to remain anonomyous. I understand why the recovery bloggers need to be anonomyous. One of our friends Jenn, of J-Online fame, is shutting down her blog because someone from her life discovered it. Jenn, I respect your decision and though we were online friends for a short time, I will miss your presence.
There was a blog on my list about a year ago called Life of a Valley Girl. The writer "Val" wrote about her personal life in very personal terms. She kept her identity a very closely guarded secret. Someone was working hard to find out who she really was. Val then felt the need to shut it down as this person meant her harm. Not cool.
If you like someone's blog, just enjoy their writing. Don't play detective with their identity. What good does that do you to do that?
