Virginia Montanez (also known as PittGirl) is a blogger based in Pittsburgh, U.S.A. She anonymously wrote The Burgh Blog from 2005 to 2008, which became known for scathing portrayals of Pittsburgh Mayor Luke Ravenstahl and his administration.[2] In August 2008, she abruptly closed the blog, saying that someone had figured out her identity.[2] Her Twitter profile features the question, "Have you kicked a pigeon today?"

After 8 months, she revealed her identity and launched a new blog That's Church.[3][4] As a result, she lost her job at a Pittsburgh-based non-profit organization.[5][6]
