This is the question that I keep on coming back to. What do blogs do for the people who keep them? Everyone seems to get different things out of them. They can be beneficial to people's careers, they can be therapeutic for people who hate their careers, they can be incredibly personal... to the point where the readers or 'followers' feel like they are entering into an intensely personal relationship with the blogger. Even if they do not even know the blogger's name. Why is anonymity so important to some people? It seems some webloggers share just about every detail of their lives bar their names. So do the 'followers' really know the person if they have never met them and do not know their name? I think they would say they do.
