Greenstump on Anonymous Blogging

...it does not really matter if the writer is anonymous or not, after all they are only opinions.

Agreed.

But you're definitely not one of them aren't you John cuz u put ur photo and real name up front! :D

I think it really depends on what type of blogs it is - if it's personal opinion, it's the choice of the author to remain anon/not.

If it's more public, there has to be photos and real names in the About page.

Therry.. That begs the question..Why? Does it make the opinion any less valid? Or as a form of...Yikes... control

Hmm control... maybe :D

For professional blogs I prefer those who have the photos of the author, sort of like a feature articles you see in magazines, where the author's photo is done in black and white, holding a serious expression while touching his/her chin with the forefinger and the thumb.
