Just a quick post about my buddy Ryan’s blog, Boys are Ugly but so Cute. This week, after getting tired of trolls and haters, he decided to shut the blog down and call it quits. Though he’d been blogging for years, he just got tired. I know how he feels. This is why I have comment moderation on all the time.
But I just heard that he’s changed his mind and he’s going to continue. Only this time he’s going private, so he won’t have to deal with the trolls and anons who don’t have the courage to leave their real names on the comment thread. He’ll switch to private sometime this weekend, and send his followers e-mails letting them know how to follow his private blog. It’s not that difficult. I’ve been following several private bloggers for years.
