Death to “Momtaku” :)
This blog is going on a more permanent hiatus than I originally intended. Maybe forever, maybe not, but certainly for now. Before anyone starts to worry, let me assure you that I’m fine. Better than fine actually. For the first time in a long while I feel powerful again.
In recent month, this blog has increasingly become the target of attacks. Blocking is pointless when people can change IPs. Turning off asks is pointless when the hate is instead sent to my friends. It’s gotten out of control and I’m tired of it. I feel like “momtaku” has become something beyond me. It’s a name that is being held to a standard that is not attainable.
So me, the very real person behind this blog, has had enough of the constant scrutiny, the hate mail and the policing of my likes. By stopping this blog, I’m taking control of my online experience again. I’m not “letting the hate win”. I see this as a victory for me because I can start over and reshape my fandom experience. So death to “momtaku”, which is fine because I wasn’t crazy about her anyway.
To the 90% of you who visit this blog and are normal people, thank you! Thank you for all the kind asks, the interesting discussion, and generally for being great people. I still love snk, I still love this fandom, and I’ll still be around but with a less known persona.
