Webill contacted me about one of my posts.

She warned me that she had been able to come up with my identity in about 5 minutes from reading the post.

While I do post anonymously, I have never tried to hide things about who I am. I suspect anybody who knew me would be able to figure out who I am in about 5 minutes just by reading the blog and figuring out my nationality, province of residence, city, profession, subspecialty, political views, musical tastes, favourite hockey team etc.

I am not certain whether it is better to post anonymously and be outed or to post using my name or otherwise identifying myself.

Anyway I thank her for pointing this out; I am glad anybody actually reads my blog. I don't like to knit but my mother does (further clues to who I am).
