The Blog of Death is a Weblog featuring obituaries of the famous, infamous and interesting unknowns.

Each obit is written by Jade Walker, a New Hampshire-based journalist with a passion for life stories. As the overnight editor of The New York Times on the Web, she published the Obits page and spent a year producing the Portraits of Grief, a collection of obits for the victims of the Sept. 11th terror attacks. When she was the editor of Inscriptions Magazine, Walker compiled the popular R.I.P. section of writer obits.

Since its debut in June 2003, The Blog of Death has published 1,600+ obituaries and 28,000+ tributes. The site has been featured on CNN and BBC Radio, and in The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, The Sacramento Bee, The Philadelphia Inquirer, The Miami Herald, The Washington Post, The Houston Chronicle, The Seattle Post-Intelligencer, Poynter Online, Yahoo! Picks, New York Magazine and CBSMarketWatch.com.
