JPIX—Since a picture is worth a thousand words…

A few months ago, enjoying my free time as an "unemployed," with very little to do which wouldn't put us further in the "hole," I volunteered to host two Jewish Blog (Jblog) Carnivals, JPIX and Havel Havelim both scheduled for September. To make it a Jblog "hat trick," after months of enjoying the fact that other jbloggers were hosting the Kosher Cooking Carnival that, too, has fallen to me. (Unless someone is willing to take it on…)

Way back when Mr. BagelBlogger, very ably assisted by his beautiful wife, the lovely Baleboosteh, took up my challenge and started JPIX-The Jbloggers Picture Carnival. Seventeen editions later they retired from the jblogging scene. After that, Little Frumhouse announced that she wanted to bring JPIX back to life. And she did! And now JPIX is organized by Leora of Here in HP. I last hosted one almost a year ago.

This time, I must admit that various pressures and a lack of preplanning are forcing me to produce the type of carnival I don't really like.  I'm taking advantage of the "instacarnival" that blog carnival offers.

Baruch Hashem, we have an enormous amount of posts for your viewing pleasure.  Please have the blog-courtesy to post about this and mail the link around, too. Thank you!

Thank you!
PS  I'm going to have to change my suggested instructions on how to host a blog carnival, because things have changed, at least on my computer.  When I copy from word onto blogger, I now lose the embedding and had to redo everything.

Now that it's illustrated, I feel better.  I now have lessons to plan and papers to grade.
Shannah Tovah U'Metukah!  May you have a good and sweet year, especially a healthy one!
