Blog anonymously

Sometimes it's important to keep your identity hidden. For these dangerous times, there's Global Voice's guide to anonymous blogging. This 25 page guide has screen-shot step by step instructions for activists to make their blog much harder to trace. The guide uses Wordpress and Tor to create more secure sites and gives instructions for using public computers as well as personal systems. Every action has a blurb about why it's important for non-tech savvy activists. From hiding your IP address to generating hard to trace email accounts, the guide is extensive and accessible.
