This is a strange, sad post to write: On Tuesday morning, amazonfemme—one of Blogtown's longtime commenters and a real-world friend to a lot of us—took her own life. She was 33. She spent a lot of time on this site, and made friends through Blogtown meetups that I know were important to her, so I thought she'd want you guys to know.

Rest in peace, Emily. You'll be missed.
