I was really enjoying getting back on top of blog posts, but you’ll notice that’s died down all of a sudden. I’ve had a bunch of things I wanted to put up on ye olde blog, but I’ve been sort of dissuaded from writing anything. Despite my best intentions, I’ve stumbled into a few pitfalls in stuff I’ve put out into the internet universe lately.

Some of you may have noticed that I took down a blog post from last weekend (and I know people noticed, because my site traffic tripled that particular day). I wrote a bunch of stuff about how I was feeling about my life in Iqaluit lately. I meant what I wrote in that post, but combined with small town gossiping, unrelated third parties were hurt who really didn’t deserve it. Gossips, please keep it to a dull roar.

Secondly, well, you can read this and come to your own conclusions. I hope it’s not controversial to say that it’s no fun to be bullied and have your job threatened for expressing an opinion (or for doing Google searches). Please keep the flame wars to a dull roar.

So in conclusion, if you’re visiting this particular corner of the internet, please refrain from bullying, threats, and mean gossip. I’m really doing my best not to hurt anybody, so please return the favour. Thank you. If anyone needs me, I’ll be curled up in my bed trying to deal with this damned insomnia I’ve had for the past week.

(Hopefully this post doesn't upset anyone, or else I may have to give this blog a break for a while.)

You sound like my long-lost twin... I never say anything personal on my blog and try to keep it un-googlable. As far as I know, no one in Hay River knows my blog.

I hope your week gets better.

There is only one way to take care of a bully... I may have taken that theory too far, but no one will accuse me of bias ever again.

I haven't looked at your blogs in a few months, and I wish I would have seen "the" weekend blog! Oh well.

So, how is the Arctic treating you?
