There are several reasons you might want to blog anonymously including: – Conflicts with work – Privacy – Safety – Talking about touchy subject

Blogging anonymously will mean a few extra steps to setting up your blog. 1) Spend some time thinking about your blogging name and what you’ll share. 

2) You’ll want to create a new email account you can use to register your blog and hosting. 3) When you set up your hosting account, you’ll need to check the box for Domain Privacy Protection. This costs $0.99 a month extra on Blue Host.
