I didn't blog much over the next couple of weeks, mostly putting up links to different things I found with short commentary; I wrote a few posts here and there, but that was it. In July, I really started to write, and most of my best posts were in July and August. (Ouch.) Until the end of August, I did not realize there was an entire "J-blogosphere", and in a way that was better: It kept me at a higher level of writing and discussion. But I was soon sucked in, and I am quite happy about that. I never would have met so many of the wonderful people I have or learned so much if not for the J-blogs.
Anyways, as I said a week ago:
From the guys at the Jester who made me realize there are intelligent people out there, to SoccerDad who showed me the existence of the J-blogosphere and gave me my first link, to Shoshana and PsychoToddler for showing me there are positive, inspiring, and funny people in that sphere, to DovBear and the others whose links sent people here, to the Wall Street Journal for asking to publish one of my posts, and to all the others whose blogs and opinions I've come to enjoy and respect, even when I disagree - thank you all.Amen.
It's been wonderful - and iyH will continue to be.
Mazal Tov. Your blog sure deserves a party.ReplyDelete
I'd share some Abba's pita with you in celebration but... oh well, I should have bought more!

Mazal Tov! btw, I still haven't gotten any Thank You cards...:)ReplyDelete
Did Shia ever catch you? LOL!ReplyDelete
My daughter was amazed at how blown up they were right off the belt. She was looking and looking at the inside of a flat one, LOL.
Happy Blogiversary and many moreReplyDelete
