    Hello!
    I just wonder if there is something wrong in building a blog under a fake name. (Made up name)
    I will do my best to provide good content, but I feel like using a pseudonym and I don't see anything wrong with since authors are doing this.
    Will it be less trust worthy in some way?

    Nope no issues in that.
    Most of the blogs have pseudo author names.

    No not at all
    if you are confused for getting a fake name, use fakenamegenerator
    many of them use it for PBN's

    Not an issue, coz its a blog not an ecommerce site where your site visitors are clients but here they are your readers so they need a quality and an interesting post rather than your name.........................

    My plan was to rry to make an amazone affiliate blog where i reviewed items. I read a big guide here on it and it sounded intresting.
    Still a bad idea to use a fake name?

    1 of the steps in Meatheads Amazon method is to create a persona for your blog.
    He says it makes it easier to sell your site down the road too. It's all good to use fake name.

    I was looking into hosters and I found this monetizepros.com/blogging/best-blogging-platforms-compared/ they say that siteground owns the content, not me.

    I also use fake names, I have never had any problem. Well, there are few advantages of using a real name. 1. You can use your own picture. 2. You can link up with your social media profiles.

    Nah. It's completely fine. Most DJs uses fake names as well. No point telling the whole world your real name and identity.
