Ex Gawker love bunnies aside, blogs are saving people’s lives. Take, for example, the mysterious case of 90 Day Jane. Though taken seriously by some, it seems a little online countdown clock knocked the suicidal tendencies right out of her.
Or, she was never really in death’s asphyxiating grip at all.
First there were the clues that commenters posted on her site, pointing to Void, a site authored by a young woman who was startlingly similar to 90 Day Jane. (Void’s author is reporting on a lump in her breast, leaving one to wonder if she’s off suicide and onto cancer now). Back on 90 Day Jane, she wrote this on day 87: “I also wanted to use this blog to help answer the question of ‘why’ for anyone who knew me and also for myself. Your comments are certainly helping me do that—many of them in a good way.”
