Yeah, tell me about it. It doesn't help that one of her last posts (later taken down here) mentioned being sick. After watching a couple hours of medical shows where seemingly innocuous colds turn deadly, it starts to make you wonder.
Well in any case, I'm tempted to do some cyber-sleuthing. What do we know? She's an English grad student, working on a PhD thesis as of 2008, which may or may not be completed by now. Her thesis may or may not be on "Victorian literature and ecocriticism." She mentioned grading student work a few times, which probably means she was/is an associate professor somewhere, most likely a bigger school. I assume she lives in the U.S. or Canada - I don't recall any lingo that would indicate otherwise. Feel free to add anything else you know, and I'll put my google-fu to the test over Christmas break.
Good luck with that, it would be so great if you found something! I'm afraid I can't think of anything else that might be useful :( I believe she is/was also on JournalFen, whatever that is.
I checked what the type of her account means, and it seems Permanently Insane accounts are just that - they don't have a set expiry date. Which means that unfortunately, this can't confirm that she's still around :(
I wish we had someone who knows her IRL commenting here...
Look up her other blog, Jacinda y [something]. It includes more personal details and the like about her, which might be useful.
I can't remember - does she have a facebook page as well?
Not that I know of.
Jacena i Nuinde, by the way, and it's the JF account here:
According to her profile, the last update there was November 19 last year, similar to this journal. She has a basic paid account there, but I don't know if that means anything, as you can buy those for life.
Grr, my ingenious idea yielded exactly zero information *again*.
