Blogger Identities

IanVisits has an interesting post on the way that the media insist on treating the identities of bloggers [^]. As Ian points out it is common practice for celebrities to referred to by their stage name; like Michael Caine rather than Maurice Micklewhite.

However, when it comes to bloggers the media often insist on using a blogger’s “real” name rather than their pseudonym. In most cases a newspaper will not include a web-address for a blog. If you can search for their online identity you stand a good chance of finding them. With only their real name you stand very little chance of finding them, and finding out if you want to follow them, their blogs or twittering.

Beechworth – Sigrid Thornton

We were in Beechworth three weeks ago for the Ned Kelly Festival 2010 [^]. The festival commemorates the committal trial of the outlaw Ned Kelly [^] in 1880 after his capture at Glenrowan [^].

There was an added attraction for many people, beside the re-enactments, with the appearance of The Man from Snowy River’s Sigrid Thornton [^]. The local media were out in force.
