My dear readers:
I started my blog on a whim two and a half years ago. The intended audience was family members and friends, who had always taken a shine to my writing. I had no idea that someday the large majority of my readership would be comprised of strangers but that is what has happened.
Now, I'm grateful for the readers I have (read any one of the comments to my posts and you'll see how impassioned they are) but there's been an increasing amount of truly offensive, hurtful, and insulting comments left by anonymous parties (talk about taking impassioned to a whole other level. Losers), who have taken it upon themselves to criticize the life that I'm leading (the single most active offender(s), by the way, is a reader from Montreal). I'm not sure I want to subject myself to this kind of nonsensical abuse any longer and am contemplating creating a private blog that only my friends and family can access.
I don't know what I'll end up deciding to do but I'm sorry that grown-ass, literate adults choose to spend their time abusing strangers, who intended to do nothing more than entertain. It's a sad shame. Goddamn punks.
