Isn't blogging -- partially, at least -- about letting people know who you are? Don't you consider "getting your name out there" an important part of blogging?

You're actually right, but someone someday may find it useful.

I'd second that. One of the primary reasons for blogging is centered around the idea of community engagement, which wouldn't be possible with anonymous presence. Curious to hear more about the use cases behind anonymous blogging.

Well. I have to agree with you guys. Most of the time people write blogs to engage with community and gain visibility in the digital world.

The use cases where I see in which people may prefer to be anonymous is when talking about a sensitive topic or whistleblowing. You don't want anyone to track you.

And in fact you can post blogs anonymously in itself. Add a hashtag #anonymous to your post and it will be posted anonymously.

You can check the list of anonymous posts so far.
