Anonymous or Not?

Anonymity was originally very important to me when I started this blog because of my desire to say whatever I wanted to without worrying about getting any backlash from my friends and family. It's not been over a year since I called myself to blog, and I've been on the fence about how tangible and real I want it to be.

For the past while, I've been looking at other blogs and how they're set up as well as the different blogging forums that are out there that may be easier/better to use. Looking at my own blog, I've tried multiple times to revamp it and make it look more professional, but most things cost money to have on a blog, money that I currently don't have as a college student. I've thought many times about maybe building it up over time, maybe start by buying a template, and then later on paying someone to create a logo for me. However, all of those things seem kind of pointless if no one is actually reading my blog...

When it comes to getting people interested in reading a blog, everyone says that anonymity makes it harder for people to support it and read it. Should I stop being anonymous to see if I can get more readers, and then revamp how my blog looks? Or should I wait until I can revamp my blog before I stop being an anonymous blogger?

For the time being, I don't see myself stopping writing this blog anytime soon. Maybe I should invest in it where I can so that it'll look how I want it to for personal reasons, so that I feel like my blog is very tangible and real. Maybe all of this isn't something that I should be thinking about until after I've gotten my first comment on a post, which I'm sad to say has not happened yet.

I'm not good with technology, and so a lot of things that I probably could be doing to make my blog seem more professional are out of my grasp simply because I don't understand how to implement them on my blog. I guess that I could try and figure them out if I was really determined to get them... I'll have to see what the future holds and what I'm able to afford.

Let me know what you think, I'd love to read your comments.
