on blogging

I’ve started and stopped this blog a few times.

Several years ago I maintained an anonymous website. I was amazed by how cathartic the process of writing online could be, and also by the amount of traffic and comments that site received. The anonymity allowed me to approach writing without restraint.

The issue, of course, is that while posting online with anonymity provides freedom, it doesn’t have the credibility associated with a known author.

This blog is open yet again and the challenge will be finding the balance between expression and reservation.
