More Guardian Award referral comments

Annie Mole - real name or pseudonym?

Ross Sleight from the post above, and many other new visitors and commenters have come as a result of my blog being Highly Commended in the
Guardian British Blog Awards. M C Morgan did recently and wrote the following:

"The Pepys' Diary project by Phil Gyford gets a mention, as does London Underground Tube Diary by Annie Mole (making a case for well-chosen pseudonyms [Actually, I'm assuming it's a pseudonym: a dangerous assumption].) Annie's project is impressive and enjoyable (and, for me, a little nostalgic) - every bit as impressive as the Pepys' Diary project. There's value inherent in documenting observations of the daily round from the inside, as Pepys and a thousand other diarists have done. But Mole goes a little further, using the blog medium to create a broad and deep document.

But people seem to mis-read what she's doing, including missing out on her gender and who she works for.

Mmm is Annie Mole a pseudonym? Anyone who's been reading my main site or some of the other links on this blog, will know the answer to this one. But thanks M C for your other comments too, they rock.
