for those of you wondering what happened with martini…she left a note in the comments of lady luck’s blog, copied here:
Hi y’all. It’s Martini! It’s funny that I started out this blogging journey a year and a half ago and thought I was the biggest dork to become a “blogger.” And now, as I sit here reading what Lady Luck wrote, and reading the comments that you all have left, tears stream down my face at my desk. I am so flattered by the comments. I can honestly say I will miss all of you and the daily outlet that blogging provided for me. I wasn’t ready to go, and I have a feeling I’ll be back.
I didn’t take my blog down so much because of Italy. You’re right, the damage is done. I took it down because I was afraid whoever sent it to Italy also sent it to other people mentioned in my blog. I had no choice. And no time to save any of it.
I’m very sad to have hurt Italy, and to lose a good guy like him. But I am not ashamed of anything I wrote or did. I was completely honest about my life, and thus, completely honest in my writing. I just underestimated the power and skills some crazy people have to take down a complete stranger for their own sadistic enjoyment.
That being said, thank you all — most of you complete strangers — for helping me through a difficult year of navigating the single world. I don’t know what I would have done without my blogging family!!
Please keep blogging because even if I have to take a hiatus from writing, nothing can stop me from reading. And don’t you worry, just like herpes, when you least expect it, I’ll be popping back up.
hers is the first blog i’ve had to delete from my “Crushing” google reader folder.
i wasn’t happy about it.
