Today I took down three of my previous posts: “Stuffer Boy Sunday: Alex” and “Baking Pies” and “‘You Can Do Better’”. (“Cyberfun” also disappeared briefly but then I remembered I had left a comment about it on Violet Blue’s blog and she wouldn’t be able to read it.)
I did this to avoid drama.
If you have been following this blog you will know that I have many different kinds of relationships with several different boys, both in RL and online. Recent events have forced me to think about changing my relationship to some of them, and putting my feelings out on such a public forum might create problems in the future. For instance, the Colt reads my blog, and I would rather he hear of the people I saw in his absence directly from me than read it in some impersonal blog post. (EDIT: he now knows about Alex and the BHM.)
Also, I try to make it my policy to ask the permission of almost everyone I write about before I put anything up about them on the internet (emphasis on the “try”). Cee, the Colt, Jaime, BBB and the “guest” stuffer boys whose photos I post every Sunday all know I write about them and have given their blessing. The exception to this is my housemates (who I’ve decided don’t need to know I am a hardcore fetishist yet do things too amusing to avoid writing about), people I make out with in the murky darkness of parties, old flames who I will mention but haven’t spoken to for years, and Alex, who I haven’t heard from since he missed his date with me on July 4th. I told the BHM I wrote a blog last night and he said he wanted to see anything before I put it up, and thus some of the posts may reappear after I’ve talked with him. “‘You Can Do Better’” will also probably re-appear in a newly edited state because I seem unable to write about anything in less than 1,794 words.)
So this is a needlessly long post explaining why you may have tried to find one of these articles and can’t now. Unfortunately, Blogger does not have a password protect feature, which would allow people limited access to these posts while still letting you know they’re there. This is the next best thing. The posts aren’t gone, I just re-saved them in my draft folder. Hopefully after I’ve figured things out a little more they can re-appear.
(Here’s a hint if you really miss them and use my RSS feed: even when it’s been deleted on my blog, it’s stuck in the RSS feed forever. Which is why you should really, really think before you put something on the internet, and why I always try to make sure it’s OK with people first.)
