Farewell Post

[A. Serwer]


This has been a crazy week for me, blogging here, at TAPPED, and working on some other long-form stuff for the Prospect. I agreed to do it, basically, because TNC has been one of my heroes ever since I read this. Before I even knew I wanted to be a journalist, when I just thought I wanted to do something that involved writing, I knew I wanted to be able to write with as much honesty, clarity, and style as Ta-Nehisi Coates. So having the opportunity to share this special space he's created has been a huge honor for me, and I'm very grateful for that.


One of the things I knew, but didn't really understand before I blogged here myself, was that TNC had managed to create on of the more involved commenter communities on the net. It's clear that many of you put as much thought and work into your responses as I did writing my posts. I've learned a lot here this week, and I hope you guys have enjoyed having me as much as I enjoyed being here.


If you want to keep up with me, I generally post all my posts and longer reported pieces to my twitter feed, which you can follow here. Otherwise, I hope you'll continue to follow my blogging over at Jack and Jill Politics or  TAPPED, where you'll also find Dana Goldstein and Tim Fernholz, two of the most talented young reporter-bloggers out there, folks who I'm proud to call my colleagues.


Thanks for having me.
