Anonymous Is A Woman Is Closing Up Shop

I've gotten to know Karen from the blog Anonymous is a Woman over the last few years. We've bonded over our passion for standing up for the working class and the work we've done behalf of progressive candidates. One of the best moments of election night in 2008 was when I got a big bear hug from Karen's husband Dan. Karen was right there too enjoying the celebration and already talking about how great this was for working families. The excitement both of them displayed that evening really went to show the pure joy they received when their extremely hard work ended with the result we'd all been hoping for. When you combine that with the fact that Karen was one of the best writers in the Virginia blogosphere, I am saddened to learn that she has decided to stop blogging.

If there's any consolation, it's that the decision comes largely as a result of her receiving a new job which will be requiring her attention. Any organization that has Karen on its staff is in very good hands and I wish her nothing but the best. I know I'll still be seeing her around in the community, but her voice in the Virginia blogosphere will most definitely be missed.
