Just wondering........I have started a blog about autism, and I'd like to get more people reading it (OK, *some* people reading it :-) ).
Now that I'm no longer on Facebook or Twitter, the only place I'd really go to, to ask a few people what they think, is this forum.
But I don't want to have to keep my blog anonymous (it kind of is at the moment, but I don't want to impose that restriction on it permanently).
Obviously if anyone ties up my account here with my blog, I'd lose my anonymity here.
That means that anything I post on my blog, I can't post here and vice versa because if I did, a cut-paste-google would instantly enable anyone to find my blog from here.
What is the risk or risks that makes it a good idea to remain anonymous on this forum?
It's annoying having to decide, when I think I have something interesting to say about autism, do I post it on my blog *or* here?
I had shared it to a couple of the Autism/Aspergers Facebook groups that I belong to. Thanks for reminding me to share it to some more. Has anyone read it yet?
Yes I got a few tens of hits after you shared it last time (thanks!). No-one coming back to it though. I made a new post yesterday that I think people here would be interested in, especially those recently diagnosed, hence my quandry!
I haven't checked so I'm not aware of how much person identifiable information you share on your blog? If it is unlikely that someone reading your blog would be able to identify in real life then I'd say go ahead and share it.
I'd be OK at the moment, but I might want to put my name on it in future. Or I don't want the hassle of looking after its security. As you can probably tell, I'm not entirely sure what I want to do!
I’m guessing that IF at some point in the future you wanted to put your name on it, it might be because you were comfortable with people identifying you as the author of the blog?
In any case. At the present moment in time your name isn’t on it. So why not share it here and see what people think? Don’t waste today worrying about tomorrow!
In the meantime I’m pleased to report that your free advertising resource has been very busy today, so hopefully you’ll get a few more hits
I'd be interested to read your blog! I doubt many people would be googling your posts, unless they were quite odd!
It's up to you of course.
Thank you - I did get a pang of guilt earlier that you're being my agent (if that's the right word) - thank you :-)
Is it OK if I PM you the address? I would post it, but I asked the mods to remove the address when I posted it previously and don't want to be a pain to them by posting it again.
No worries! No need to feel guilt either! It's no skin off of my nose, just a simple copy, paste, post! Happy to help!
Yep that would be fine
