George Eliot, Dooce and me.

After I came out with real-life photos, CNN posted a story about revealing anonymous bloggers. You just are not that anonymous on the internet.

I do understand if you need to use a pen name. It's a literary tradition. Maybe you are a political whistle blower. Or you are blogging about work.

An online persona can be so complicated.

Common sense should tell you that if you make enough noise, you will draw attention to yourself.

I love to read blogs about personal stuff. Because I'm a voyeur. But I wouldn't want to worry about being outed.
