Congratulations Jen Chung and Gothamist for Winning Wired Rave Award

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

In the over-achieving world of online pioneers there are very few people who produce as much as Jen Chung. When she's not editing and writing for Gothamist, the super-ginormous example of how city-based group blogs should be, she's Executive Editing the Gothamist empire (which includes LAist and a dozen other -ists), or she's working her day job at a NY advertising company.

Wanna feel like a slacker? Last week Jen wrote 56 posts on Gothamist. That's eight a day. Meaty ones. Good ones. Solid ones.

Jen Chung has written so much on Gothamist over the last 5+ years that our browser has problems simply handling the page of the titles of the 10,373 posts she's delivered to the site that she co-founded with Jake Dobkin.

A little bird told us that Jen and Gothamist were on the winning end of a Wired Rave Award which will be formally announced when the cutting-edge tech magazine comes out in the next few weeks.

Of 72 million blogs tracked by Technorati, Gothamist ranks as the 161st most-popular blog because of their relentlessly detailed coverage of the big apple led by the fine examples of Jen and Jake. And we don't just say that because they're our bosses, we say that because as fellow bloggers we truly appreciate their dedication, hard work, and professionalism.

Congrats to Jen, Jake, and everyone at Gothamist. And kudos to Wired for picking a worthy recipient for their award.
