Corona Lock-down Boredom, Try Reading Blogs

Most of the modern world is suffering severe boredom, since we're in corona lock-down. Try reading blogs. There are still many bloggers like myself who post new material on independent blogs. You have nothing to lose. It's free.

I've been blogging for over twenty years. At one point there was quite a large community of Jewish and Israeli bloggers. We used to have regular blog carnivals, each with a different topic, general, kosher cooking and pictures. Then they faded away. I'm still in touch with some of those bloggers and others I met through blogging.

Some of the most successful bloggers have stopped blogging completely. Others, like myself still enjoy the medium. We get to write and "publish" what we like, when we want. I used to blog "religiously," daily on each of my blogs. Now I blog less.

Every once in a while I blog a round-up of blog posts from various blogs. My custom is just to give you the title without even a hint as to what blog it appears on. Today seems like a good time to offer you some blogs. Reading blogs is a nice way to travel and meet new people, or see old friends.

I'd like to make it clear that I'm not responsible for the opinions of other bloggers included in this round-up.

If there's a blog you'd recommend, please let me know in the comments, thanks. Enjoy, and let me know which is your favorite.

Wow! I'm in awe of you, and how you've kept this up -- even intermittently -- over the years. Thank you, Batya. I'll give some of these a read. Thanks for including mine, as well. May we share in the future a resurgence of blogging, and of actual IRL meetups of the JBlogger community. Stay healthy.

Thanks, Ruti, I hope this gives everyone more traffic to their blogs.

Oh Batya, thank you so much. We are so much in a Spiritual Storm here on earth. Wishing you and your family that Hashem should protect you from getting sick from the coronavirus.
