On privacy and disclosure in blogging

about my sites, blogging, personal, technology

See that disclaimer above?

I’ve often mentioned something similar on personal-type posts in the past, and I figured I might as well save myself some typing and have it automatically displayed above all posts that are in my “Personal” category.

I’m curious to know your perception.

Does it change the way you view me or my blog to know that I’m often using fake names when referring to friends? Or that I’m also sometimes engaging in ‘time-shifting’ to foil those who might otherwise be able to more easily link up my stories with specific events?

I personally feel that the sliver of my life I present here is pretty sincere and representative. But at the same time, I can understand that the above bold disclaimer may sow some regrettable confusion and distrust.

Tell me what you think.
