Which is why I don't update this one anymore. Seek me out on Twitter if you must. I post things on the Tumblr every once in awhile, because not every thought I have is 140 characters long. (Though most of them are.)
But here's some current bio stuff, if that's what you're looking for.

You also may have heard I'm a Christian now. I am! I am not huge on talking about it, though. If you are a journalist type seeking comment from me as "liberal Christian," please continue your seeking comment elsewhere. (And, you know, continue seeking. That's what I do.)
And here's a lot of that written up in a nice way:
Ana Marie Cox is a political columnist and culture critic; she contributes regularly to The Daily Beast and Bloomberg View, as well as MSNBC, The New York Times, Grantland and elsewhere. Since starting the snarky political blog Wonkette in 2004, she has worked for a variety outlets, including Time magazine, GQ, Air America, and The Guardian. Prior Wonkette, she was an editor at Mother Jones and at the webzine Suck.com. She is the author of the romantic comedy novel Dog Days.
Ana gained attention in 2008 for being an early, enthusiastic adopter of Twitter and quickly gained a following of over 1 million users. This enthusiasm has translated into an intellectual interest as well; she’s lectured on the intersection of social media and social activism at The University of Chicago’s Institute of Politics and All Soul’s College at Oxford University.
In 2011, Ana left Washington, DC and began a journey in long-term recovery. She lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota with her husband, John Ramonas, and their two cats, Luke and Leia (The Jedi Twins, who are also famous on social media and sometimes Tweet from @thejeditwins).
