The brainwave to accept contributions to the blog to allow others to blog anonymously was not a brainstorm idea, indeed it was not my idea at all. The structure of The Real Supermum Blog changed dramatically when the first reader asked if they could share their story but remain anonymous.
This first anonymous blog post opened up the flood gates and the posts came flooding in. This has become a popular feature to this blog, you will find a wide variety of them here.
How To Blog Anonymously
Search for a blog that accepts anonymous guest posts, a Google search would provide a list. When this blog is used, I either receive a Facebook inbox message or an email requesting the post to be added anonymously.
Why Do People Blog Anonymous?
I have found that the posts given to me to share anonymously are those that contain experiences that involve abuse, domestic violence, are mental illness related or are deep thoughts and fears.
There are many reasons to blog anonymous
- Some feel ashamed
- Various posters feel guilty
- Many fear the reaction of others and the judgement they may receive
- The writer may want to keep the information disclosed from family members
- It maybe a blogger who does not wish to disclose their name for personal reasons
What ever the reason behind keeping your name secret, blogging anonymously gives you the perfect opportunity to share your deepest secrets, fears or thoughts.
The Real Supermum Blog is proud to offer an anonymous blog site feature.
