Michele Catalano has closed up A Small Victory.

By the sounds of it, she will still be very busy, but the blog itself is gone-zo.

What a tragedy. ASV was one of the first blogs I began reading three years ago. Yesterday she wrote a post about how it had been five years since she had started blogging. Five Years. No wonder she decided to give it up.

Five years ago blogs were practically unheard of. Michele offered readers a little bit of everything - rants, raves, political commentary, family photos, stories, music... the list goes on. Her words and works after September 11, 2001 were particularily poignant, and she continued to remember the attacks every anniversary since.

There is no doubt that she influenced me a great deal. I wish her the best of luck in all she does.
