Like Rutter & Smith (although they do not refer to bloggers) - most of those
I interviewed "expressed disappointment that they [will] not be personally
identified" (Rutter & Smith 2005: 90)

RUTTER, J. & G. W. H. SMITH 2005. Ethnographic Presence in  a Nebulous
Setting. In Virtual Methods. Issues in Social Research on the Internet (ed)
C. Hine, 81-92. Oxford: Berg.

Hope that helps.

I know there have been instances in which persons observed in online
research have not wished to be anonymous, but rather have insisted on
having their online writing cited and credited to them as authors. But
for the life of me I can't recall a reference in scholarly literature
for this phenomenon. Would anyone be willing to provide one? Thanks!
