Best wishes on your continued success, enjoyment of life, thoughtful perspectives, willingness to listen to opposing views, and generally kick ass writing. I am glad to hear we will still hear from you here!
Agreed, that series was my favorite of your works! Hope you at least stick around in the Commentariat. We can make fun of all those doofuses that write for Jalopnik together! j/k
I still can’t thank you and Alanis both for taking on some of the motorsport coverage when I discovered that I just couldn’t take that anymore. You took it on with the kind of enthusiasm I’d lost, and I loved reading every second of it. This site will be worse off without you on it, but I expect good things in your… Read more
Oh no! There goes some of the best motorsport writing I could find on the internet. At least for now. But it certainly sounds like you’re making the right, if unfortunate (for us) decision!
Good luck. I know I was a bit (ok, sometimes a lot) harsh on you in your Jalopnik formative days, but you’ve grown more as a writer than any of your other colleagues on this site in my decade-ish of being a regular. Looking forward to that novel.
I’ve been lurking for years and rarely post, except for the random drunken post fest. I have enjoyed your articles, frequently when I’m done reading them and scroll up to see who wrote that. Best of luck to you!
You and your work are awesome and will be missed around here! Thank you for being a part of my daily routine, and making consequently making it better.
Say it isn’t so!!! Your great racing content was one of the very reasons I started reading Jalopnik in the first place! The racing community needs more women like you around! And thank you for the sharing your personal story, your success inspires me to keep on fighting my own mental illness. You’ll be missed greatly… Read more
Sorry to see you go Blackstock. I like your women in racing pieces. They were a lot of fun to learn about since no one gives them pages nowadays. Best of luck at school and your future endeavors. And remember, self first, everything else take a ticket.
NOT AGAIN, jeez. Another good one leaving. You’ve been to way more races than I have and have inspired me to seek out more. Hope you get to a MotoGP race someday!
You are a very good writer and a pleasure to read: Enthusiasm and passion about racing and general life observations. I wish you the best in your next adventure. Please continue to have fun.
Your blogs on women from motorsport’s history were incredibly fascinating. As a big rally fan, I knew of Michelle Mouton (forever my QUEEN) and, of course, many racing fans know of the ladies who competed at Indy, but I had no idea about most women you wrote about. Those blogs were seriously great reads. Read more
I was wondering why you were posting so many articles yesterday. Good luck with grad school.
You did a brilliant job. One of the best writers this site has had.
Jalopnik isn’t going to have any writers left at this rate.
Congratulations on the next chapter!
