I simply no longer love blogging. Instead of feeling gleeful anticipation when writing up a post, I feel nothing but dread. There’s a group of people out there devoted to hating me, my friends, and even people I’m just vaguely associated with. I wake up every morning to abusive comments, tweets, and emails about how I’m a prude, ugly, fat retard.

This behavior is affecting all parts of my life. I can’t focus or enjoy my hobbies or work. I spend most of my free time angry, on the verge of tears, or sobbing as I have to moderate comments or read what new terrible things people have said about me.

To those of you who have provided support: thank you, and I’m sorry. I feel like I’ve failed you, but the only solution I see is to unplug.
