What do you all think of anonymous blogs?
For example, I read a certain anonymous agent's blog and think she's hilarious, but because she is anonymous, I take everything she says with a grain of salt. Part of me can't keep from thinking that she might just be a bored teenage boy sitting in Poughkipsee amusing himself. Okay, that's probably not true. She's very onto it, so she is, in all likelihood, an agent.
But in reading the comments, it seems to me that some people have suspended all disbelief. Heck, people even ask her questions they should be asking their own agents. What's up with that?
However on the blogger's side of it, it does allow complete freedom doesn't it?
Like, I never say bad things about other authors' books on this blog for the simple reason that they're people too. I'd rather mention the books I liked because I think a positive opinion has as much impact as a negative.
However that doesn't mean I don't have some snark in me. If I started up an anonymous blog, I could let it all out. Of course that would involve me cloning myself so I'd have time to write, review and double-blog, so I think I'll just let that idea whisper off into the ether. But the conspiracy theorist in me wonders how many other people are doing that very same sneaky thing...
So, what's everyone else think? And for those of you who choose to blog anonymously, is it the freedom that drives you? Do you say things you'd never say in real life?
p.s. The next blog entry will be Wednesday, though I will be around tomorrow, so comment away!
