When a blogger remains anonymous, how, if at all, might the anonymity affect your reading of the blog? If it wouldn’t affect your reading, why?

It depends to what scale your blog upholds, and what specifically you’re blogging about. I feel stereotypically we think all anonymous bloggers would be talking about sensitive topics about one’s personal life. In that case we would see a more sincere reaction majority of the time from the readers. This is because we can’t put a face to what the blog is about. Therefore, there wouldn’t be a predisposition or bias to what the blog is about because we don’t know who is writing it.

That being said it doesn’t always have to be about sex etc. It can be belligerent and obnoxious because on the bloggers side there are no repercussions. There is no tracing back allowing the blogger to post whatever he or she chooses.
