My blogging anonymity is almost complete…a few friends and some of my family know, but that’s pretty much it. I like it that way, for reasons discussed in a little bit of detail in a previous post. Though it does have its downside.
Like when my boss calls me into his office because he wants to show me the cool thing he found on my blog, in this case Rolling Rock is doing by advertising on the moon.
In a way, it was kind of cool to know that people I know are reading this blog…but also a shock. I am possibly the worst actor/liar in the entire world and immediately turned red and sort of stuttered out how cool it was (and then, because I just couldn’t resist, told him that I loved the Daily (Ad) Biz and read it every day because it was so well written and over-the-top insightful). Also, I didn’t get the credit for sending the Rolling Rock thing around.
Anonymity is nice because it allows me to comment honestly on the industry while working in the industry, but it is also precarious.
Luckily, so far, nobody has guessed that it’s me. And if they do the content on here is so tame that I am unlikely to go the way of Washingtonienne or other blogs like that.
Or so I tell myself.
