I've seen conflicting opinions on this, so I thought it wouldn't hurt to get a few more.
What are your thoughts on realism (as in, say, bloggers blogging about things unrelated to the bigger story, etc.) in the 'verse? What will break your suspension of disbelief, and at what point does realism become tedious?

Oooh, good question. It depends. If the blogger starts out with regular everyday herp-derp, then it all dissolves into Slendy rants, then I'm fine. Likewise, if someone comments on their daily lives in a short anecdote or some other little, "Oh, btw this is going on too, I do have a non-Slenderman life", that's okay too, and even a break in the posts is ok with me, but when someone rambles or goes off-topic for too long, then I get annoyed.

imo there is a really fine line on what could be considered "realistic" in blogs. For these you can really get away with most things, you just have to worry more about keeping your characters and their reactions to situations realistic. For vlogs there is probably less you can get away with simply for the fact that it can be harder to pull off certain things in a visual medium, but if it can be done well I don't think anything should be "off limits".
