There seems to be some very negative views
in the blogosphere about anonymous librarian blogs. However, I think that there are cases where it is appropriate to be an anonymous blogger. Many public libraries are very careful about their public image and do not want any information about their library published unless it has been vetted by the public relations department. I chose to be semi - anonymous: my blog does not mention my library system, so that I can be clear that I am representing my own views and not necessarily representing the views of that system. By looking at my associated web presence (such as my Ning profile), one can see what system I work for and could probably determine my identity.
What do you think about anonymity for bloggers? Do you think that it impacts the respectability of the blog?
