Recommended Reading List #47

The question of anonymity/pseudonymity is one that it close to this blog's heart, so Left Outside's essay on the subject is one which can be heartily recommended.

The unaffiliated West Berkshire blogger states that he enjoys blogging as an end in itself, but he does it primarily because he cares about other people... which leads him inevitably to focus on political questions.

As he says: "I like being able to have an effect on people for the better – no matter how small an impact."

Although blogging and anonymity are both equally relatively pointless, he argues that it's about a desire to strike a balance between influence and personal growth. Reading the examples he provides, you can understand why!
