Many months ago, I got to know a blogger rather well. We chatted everyday, morning and night, many times for many hours. After a few weeks, we exchanged photos of how we look like, exchanged stories about our lives and opened up about each other.
We shared a bond and we shared a trust. A trust.
Or so I thought.
The blogger went MIA for a while and while he was gone, I did a bit of digging and research and later found out that half of the things he told me was false. I was in shock, and in fact, I knew this was going to happen one day after having this discussion with a few bloggers before. However, nothing can prepare you for the shock when you found out about the lies from a blogger you highly respected and you thought was a friend.
I didn't tell anyone, and spent a few days digesting the fact.
However, it also worries me that many teens follow this blogger - he has quite a large following and people do worship him. What worries even more is that this blogger just recently made a come back and as much as I'd like to let this go, a part of me feel disturbed and uncomfortable with the fact that I know some of the truth behind the lies, yet I am not doing anything but watching this throngs of people throwing themselves at him.
What would you do?
