Another Anonymous Blogger Bites the DustNovember 20th, 2009 by Liesl received No Comments »
So the blogosphere is all a-tingle with the news that blogger and author Belle de Jour is actually Dr Brooke Magnanti.
I, for one, am glad that she turned out to be:
- An actual woman (there were many doubters)
- An actual former sex worker (again, many doubters)
- A doctor working for a worthwhile cause
- Proud of her accomplishments and of her past
Politics and emotions aside regarding who/what she is/was, it is a good thing for one of the medium’s great success stories to ring so true. I wish the stories of so many anonymous whistle blowers ended as happily for them, or allowed them as much (relative) freedom on when to step forward.Blogging, World Wide Wonder
