This article in city pages outlines the events of a fictional blogger who was around for YEARS. The blog was written by Plain Jayne – a late twenties girl who shared her past rape experience, photos of herself and friends, and corresponded with her readers via email, instant messenger, and commenting on her site. The blog was, at its heyday, getting 5,000 unique visitors a day – that’s HUGE. One day the character disappeared and some loyal readers began investigating, only to find out that the author was actually an author writing a fictional blog. City Pages interviews the author – a male, married, with two children, living in Woodbury, MN, who describes the project as Interactive Creative Writing.
