Here it is

I thought that the best thing to do would be to shut down my blog. I did, and started a new one elsewhere, only somewhat successfully. One of the people that I'd been avoiding followed me anyway.

So, here's the details.

I'm friends with some boys that I met in high school. I've lost touch with some of the others that used to be in the same group, and I've written about them in the past. There are one or two that I don't miss, and I wrote some things that I believe about them.

One of the boys that I don't communicate with read a bit about himself. He heard about the blog from a friend of a friend, and according to my stats read almost the whole thing in one night. Then he posted a very strange and enormously long comment defending himself and his actions in the past. And he posted a link to my blog from his website.

This freaked me out. Horribly. Maybe it shouldn't have, but I let it get to me. I started to think about all of the things that I'd written, and did I really want to leave it out there for anyone to read? (Okay, for people to know that it was me writing about them.)

I talked to Apathy Bear, and his advice will surprise no one who has ever read any of his comments or entries here. He said, "Fuck him." I just couldn't let it go, so I dismantled the blog and thought I might start another, sometime soon.

I missed writing and interacting with other bloggers, so that same weekend I started another blog. I didn't like it as much. So I'm back.

Please excuse the interruption in service, we appreciate your patience. Thank you for visiting Telling Deeds, come again.

Well, I for one am glad you're back. And I echo Bear's sentiments.

"Joke 'em if they can't take a fuck."

Just thought I'd add that.

I guess I got over whatever it was. I'm happy to be back, thanks.

I'm on side with Dean and Bear. Having said that, however, I'm not sure how I'd react if the same thing happened to me. None of my friends or family know about my blog (well, my sister might, but she's never said anything about it so I can pretend). I've just started a non-anonymous, family-friendly version, though, so they can see recent photos and stuff.

I'm very glad you're back.

And I'm glad you're back, too. Give'em hell.
