Why is my blog anonymous

I figured I owe you lovely readers a little bit of an explanation as to why this blog is anonymous...at least for the moment.




When I first started blogging I was so set against having a blog with personal photos. I just couldn't see the point in risking people I knew seeing it - nothing especially bad about it really but I just found the whole thought of it cringe-inducing. I also didn't see a benefit in putting myself out there and then having the inevitable hateful comments that come hand-in-hand with having a long term blog; if there were identifiable photos on here it would just make everything feel that bit more personal. So I've been just trying to avoid the whole thing and up til now it's been a good decision for me.

At the start I found blogging quite embarrassing and I didn't know if I would enjoy it so it was helpful for me to be a bit more private. Things have changed now I know I really enjoy blogging and now that I'll be doing it long-term I'm not as bothered about keeping it a secret. Another big factor for me was the realisation it must be hard for you as a reader to relate to me if you don't know who I am. I am a twenty-something blonde but for all you know I could be an ancient bearded man with a catfishing obsession; so yanoo I think it's about time I was a bit more open. Plus it also can't be terribly exciting looking at photos of the back of someone's head all the time and it's a nightmare for me too since I can't see what my hair looks like from the back. 1st world problems and that eh?    

So I'm saying that I wont be anonymous for much longer and I'm planning to be more open in (hopefully) a couple of months, I hope to see you then.

  1. I think we all had similar feelings of embarrassment at the start so if you're feeling comfortable now, definitely take the step to stop being anonymous! xx

    1. Thanks, that's actually really reassuring to hear. I sort of felt everyone else was just swimming along and it was just me cringing out haha x

  2. I still find it quite embarrassing, which is weird because I love blogging so much. I still haven't told everyone I do it as I'm scared they will think my posts are cringey, but baby steps are important. Will be great to see you take the step as soon as you feel ready :)
