Goodbye PittGirl, Hello Virginia.

The phenomenon of PittGirl, our town’s most famous blogger, demonstrates how powerful a medium the internet really is.

The former PittGirl’s new blog, That’s Church, had something like 50,000 page views when earlier this week she revealed her identity and drew well over 100 comments from her legion of fans.

The exciting thing about blogging success stories like this is that anybody can do it. And lots of anybodies from anywhere have done it, are doing it and will continue to do it. If you can write interesting stuff like PittGirl did and Virginia Montinez does, you too can be a force. But the key word is “interesting.” Content is the soul of a blog. If you have it, they will find you.

That having been said, this is not an endorsement of That’s Church. While exceptionally interesting, it is . . . very, very blunt. Frankly, that genre is not to my taste. But it may be yours and if so, there is no reason not to read That’s Church or anything else you want.

And I do not endorse punting pigeons. Or should I say “trying” to punt pigeons? It has been my lifelong observation that pigeons, like PittGirl, can handle anything.
