I’ve realized (quite late actually) that the majority of law student blogs seem to be written by anonymous authors.
I’ve moved around a lot (countries, states, and social circles) and blog “to keep in touch” with former friends/acquaintances that care to look me up.
The vast majority of people who read my blog are people who I no longer have daily contact with, but who know who I am.
I plan on keeping my general “what I did today” blog throughout law school, but I’m wondering if that’s such a keen idea for this blog. I couldn’t have great categories like “professor son of a bitch.”
Not that I’d ever even think that about a professor.
But seriously, I wouldn’t waste my time writing malicious crap anyway and wouldn’t write anything that I wouldn’t want my name attached to – so how important is anonymity?
Will I be out an important job or internship because of my digital footprint?0
