I would be an absolutely atrocious cataloguer because I seem to have no consistency about what I call things. I can't even maintain consistency in the name of this blog. Is it the exploded library, explodedlibrary, or explodedlibrary.info? I use all three permutations regularly - I guess that it depends on my mood. So if you link to me, don't worry about getting the name right, because I don't.
This isn't meant to be anonymous blog. When I first started blogging on Radio Userland, I didn't know how to make the blog anonymous. So that's how it started - and when other bloggers first welcomed me, they always included my name.
There have been, and continue to be debates about anonymous blogging. It's not for me because I would live in fear of having my true identity discovered. And it would be much more difficult for the benefits of blogging to spill over into my real life if I was anonymous.
I realize that my switch to TypePad has had the effect of obscuring my identity a little. My name, Morgan Wilson, is now on the About Me page. I don't usually bother correcting people when they think I'm female. It's a reasonable assumption to make - androgynous name in a profession with more women than men.
I have thought about starting a LiveJournal community for the private journals of public bloggers. Because the exploded library isn't anonymous, I leave out a lot of the personal stuff. Much of that goes into my anonymous LiveJournal. I wonder how many other bloggers are on LiveJournal - I've already found a few, and it's very interesting to make those connections. If anyone reading this would be interested in a LiveJournal community, please send me an email or add a comment.
