COMMENTING, BLOGGING AND ANONYMITY July 24, 2004Posted by wmmbb in Blogging in general.
Spasmodically, with my heart in my hand, and my spleen in the surgical out tray, I have dared to comment on other blogs. The most recent example was when I took a walk on the wild side, and quacked along the road to surfdom.
I may be in the running for a Lord Sedgewood award for irrelevance.
I am intending to do some research into this electorate, and hope to get pre-election polling. Should be interesting. I had a second foray into commenting today on Public Interest.
Having a blog, even one as unknown as this, means the end to anonmity. This is something to accept. Be that as it may. In my current job, I don’t write anything. To write minimally, and that in itself is a reasonable objective, requires, in my opinion, respect for a reader.
Then I have jumped on a learning curve, evident from the appearance of this blog so far, for even simple things such as creating links.
But in this case, at least, I have found that by posting myself, perhaps too impulsively, I am ready to make comments elsewhere with a view to stimulating conversation around those issues that are of great interest to me, and of which I am not necessarily well informed.
