I began blogging under my real name but was I harassed and cyber stalked. I deleted my original blog and started blogging again under a pseudonym. After someone very close to us went through 18 months of a living hell due to identity theft, my friends and I made a pact. We do not blog about our private lives, relationships with friends and family members, or post any images of them on our blogs.
timethief shares some excellent advice for those starting out blogging on whether to use your real name or a pseudonym.
