Although I don't think the creator knows about it yet.

I know "Teh" is deliberate, but it's grating me. :/

The guy seems pretty likeable, though. I'll keep my eye on it.

Effort, man, effort. That's what these new blogs are lacking. Going from regular posting to hacked accounts and Operator Symbols in under a week. If you don't have the patience to build up your characters, then just start in media res or something. This just looks lazy.

Now now, let's give this guy a chance. This is probably his first time doing this.

Oh, I do plan to follow it. I'm not giving up on it just yet; there have been other stories out there which didn't start out very well, but became better. It's just that I'm seeing a lot of the newer blogs making the mistake of rushing into the Slender Man stuff too quickly. That can work for some stories, but if the basis of the story is a regular person being hunted by Slender Man, then we need time to build up our sympathies with the character before Slendy's introduced. Otherwise, things like his account being hacked really don't mean anything. I don't know this person; why should I care if someone changed his account's avatar to an (X)?

Yes. I understand that. But having an account hacked is commonplace in these stories.
And again, I return to the idea of sympathy. His character hasn't been established. I don't know anything about him. I don't know why I should care about him, or his problems. All the information we have on him is that his name is Danny Murrey, he goes by Teh Shovel, and he has a Spanish class. We don't know anything about his personality, what he likes to do, his pet peeves, what his flaws are, anything. There is nothing in the characterization we currently have of him that gives us anything to identify with. At the moment, it is nearly impossible to sympathize with the character. Thus, his account being hacked doesn't trigger any emotions in me, because the author hasn't yet made me care about his character enough.

That, and it's a week into it, and it's second post. There's hurrying it, then there's rushing it.

Looks like Teh Shovel updated his blog again. However, he is still unaware of the significance of the symbol that appeared when his account was hacked. I think he is waiting for someone to comment on his posts, to move the story along.

And he also slipped in a 20 dollars in-joke. How clever.

I'm sorry, I'm not sure if you meant that last part sarcastically, but if you did you aren't exactly in a place to throw stones, mate Razz

No, really. The title is perfect. There is no escaping the reality of this train wreck.

I think he's trying to go for a similar angle that CUT! did. Might be quite amusing.
