Meet The Blogs

I'm trying to reconstruct/make a new blogroll.  When Risa and I (more of Risa's work than mine) redid/changed the Model T template to a new modern blogger's dream, my old blogroll got lost.  It's not the end of the world.  Things do disappear when you move to a new home.  Don't they?  And quite a few of those old blogs haven't functioned in years.  Some of the links were taken over by porn sites and virus factories, so I was afraid to check them out.  I've quickly added a few blogs to my new list, and if your blog was left out, just send me a note/comment with the link, so I can add it.  Of course, I'd appreciate being on your blogroll, common courtesy, nu...

I like this new set-up which shows if there's anything new on the blogs, making it easier to know when to visit.  Sometimes when I feel the need to visit new blogs, I go to other blogs and check their lists.  Now you can go to mine.  If you don't know who's worth visiting, I hope this  "getting to know..." post helps.  I'm not including everyone.  Obviously, I recommend checking out thse blogs, or they wouldn't have had been added to my new blogroll!

Let's start with Risa who wrote about seeing the musical JUDGE! – Song of Devora in Gush Etzion.  The person whom we must thank for establishing the theater company is Sharon Katz of Voices Magazine.  I just re-added her blog to my list.

Chaviva and I haven't f2f'ed yet, but I hope we get the chance soon, since she and her husband will be in Israel for a visit.

I have met Life in Israel's Rafi, both in his home town of RBA and mine, Shiloh.  I'd love to meet rickismom of Beneath the Wings.

Shimshonit's blog is updated infrequently, but when it is, it's a treat to read the post.  Our Shiputzim is another made in Israel blog about life in Israel, not what you'd read in the New York Times.

Leora's blog life in New Jersey is very different from Robert's in California and Soccer Dad's in Baltimore.

Please visit them all and tell them I sent you, of course.

That's just a taste of what I read.  The list is under construction...

I'm honored to be included. Thanks!
Maybe if there is another blogger get-together, I'll actually show and we can meet!

Thanks for including me!

I briefly met your husband in person at last year's Succot picnic, when you were in the States, and I hope we can also meet someday soon!

What a lovely idea! Thanks for including me. We should get together more often. See you next week.

Thank you for including me in your list!

"Our Shiputzim is another made in Israel blog about life in Israel, not what you'd read in the New York Times." - oh, yeah, that's for sure on that one!

Shimshonit has had a lot of posts lately - what a variety of topics. From olive tree wars to early Americana.
