privacy between blogs

  1. its not a problem just a concern. i have two blogs under this user name and im wondering if there is any public link between them.
    ideally, id hope that people reading one blog wouldnt know i write the other one too.
    or should i use two separate accounts?
    i ask because im finding that i have the same followers for both blogs and the same poeple are liking posts from both blogs...its happened far too often to be a coincidence.

    thank you.

    No, there isn't a public link between any blogs you create with your WordPress.com account unless you link to each of them from both sites and/or link to both in your Gravatar profile.

    Is there a chance you left a comment on another WordPress.com blog while logged into your account and linked to both sites?

    Thanks, Bryan.
    i have no info in my Gravatar profile. ive purposefully left it blank.i have commented with this account on my own blog but there is no link from clicking on my name to any of my blogs as far as i know. ive tried my best to make sure there is no link there. am i missing something?

  4. Hmm. Perhaps they're following topics (categories and tags) you're posting to, then Liking those posts from Reader (which is also a good possibility).

  5. A simple Google search for your username will turn up both blogs. This is why I always suggest people have their blogs under totally separate identities.

  6. Bryan, thanks again. that could be it. and i just realized that im often posting at the same time of day for each so maybe ill start setting up one to post later on. im not hugely worried but i just wanted to make sure there wasnt any direct connection.

    Raincoaster, i have already thought of that and searching my username doesnt show anything of my anonymous blog. ive done everything except using separate identities...i just assumed there was no publicly visible connection but once i started seeing the same followers and likers it threw me off. anyway, its not as though any of my posts contain any missile launch codes :) thanks for your time.

  8. You might just be getting the same Like and Follow spammers as everyone else. They just go from blog to blog doing this.
