I got an e-mail from one of my relatives today worried that I was cutting them out by making this blog private. That's not the case, so I figure I'd better explain why I'm taking this action. Initially I didn't want to say much because I've suddenly found myself in this weird online stalker situation and I know that addressing it here will probably just intensify it.
There's this guy I was once reluctant friends with who has been weirdly obsessed with me ever since Allie and I didn't invite him to our wedding because he sexually harrassed one of our friends. Almost immediately he started writing all these over-the-top nasty posts about me on his blog. I was taken aback at first, but then I decided to just ignore it. Supposedly his is a joke blog, but I've had the misfortune of hanging around with him in person and I can attest that it's no joke -- especially the misogynist and racist stuff. Mostly he craves attention.
But recently he's started writing really creepy sexual stuff about me and I just have to cut him off. It's unfortunate, but I guess all those Dateline NBC sensationalist reports about the dangers of the Internet were at least partially true.
Anyway, all my friends and family are welcome to keep reading. Send me your e-mail me at gobodog [at] gmail [dot] com and I'll set you up for access. I'll probablly make the switch a week from Saturday.
