This is a story about a guy who regretted after the dead of his girlfriend. All was happened because of a blog. A blog created by himself. A blog that told all his life to the world. And a blog that killed his girlfriend, the one he should has married two months from the date she was killed. After the death of his girlfriend, Nathaniel joined the 1 Citizen and learned the safe way to blog.
The story begins.
Nathaniel was an active blogger since 2007. Every day he would make sure that he updated his blog. Everything was being told to the public. Everything was known by the public. His love story, his private life and even about his family. For example, if his family had financial problems, he would post it on the blog.
Irvy, what a lovely name. As lovely as her face, her skin, her attitude, simply said, everything about he is lovely in front of him. Irvy and Nathaniel were met during his trip to Korea on 28 April 2008. Since the day they met, they became so close. Nathaniel wrote on his blog bout their trip together. About what they did and went. He also uploaded a lot of pictures especially about the girl. After 2 weeks in Korea, Nathaniel went back to Kuala Lumpur. Their relationship still went on for 3 months. On the 3rd months, Irvy got an offer as interior designer in a big company in Kuala Lumpur. Since she came to Malaysia, Nathaniel always met her and sometimes fetch her at work. In September 2008, they officially couple. During that period, Nathaniel’s blog also became popular. He posted about their date and uploaded their pictures.  He wrote everything about Irvy including her workplace and address. What a stupid action, right?
Around 2010, after knew each other’s feeling, Nathaniel decided to propose her. Before that, Nathaniel went post in his blog about his plan. Many of his followers gave positive comments except one of them with an IM name SHUTTER. SHUTTER commented that Nathaniel would not get the girl. Nathaniel just thought the comment as a prank and ignored the comment. One night, Nathaniel went to Irvy’s house. The house looked so dark and empty. Nathaniel very curious and he called Irvy’s handphone. No one picked the phone but the ring was heard from the house. Nathaniel broke the front door and saw Irvy’s lifeless body lying on the floor covered with blood. Nathaniel fainted.
Nathaniel woke up and realised that he was in the hospital. Someone has called the police and reported the murder. Polices tried to track the call but failed. The investigation went on for 2 weeks. On the last day of the investigation, Nathaniel opened his blog. He read his last post and accidently saw a comment from SHUTTER. SHUTTER had left another comment for him when he was log out. “ You want your girl to eat bullets?”, that was the last comment left by SHUTTER. Nathaniel went and reported to the polices. The polices tracked SHUTTER’s identity and went to arrest him. SHUTTER was a mentally disorder girl who seems like in love with Nathaniel. She been followed his blog from the beginning. On her wall, there were printed posts from Nathaniel’s blog and pictures of Nathaniel. Irvy’s pictures were stretched out.
We hope you can learn from the above story. Remember not to exposed everything about yourselves. Some of it should be keep as a secret. You should know to control yourselves when blogging.
