Besides blogging here on Shiloh Musings, the very first blog I opened, my posts appear on Arutz 7, where they are very popular. See this:
I was one of Arutz 7's very first bloggers, and then for a couple of years I didn't blog there, but not all that long ago I was invited back. And apparently that was a wise move on behalf of the editor. It's rare for me not to have one of the top six posts according to popularity. Two out of the six is very common, and as you can see here, I've reached three out is six quite a few times.
The Jewish Press also posts my articles, and there have been times when thousands have "liked" them. Unlike the other places I blog, the editor there chooses the articles to be posted, not me. So sometimes they aren't even in the same consecutive order as when written. But my way of looking at the world does suit their readership.
My newest blog is on the Jerusalem Post, which is the hardest to gain prominence and readers. The Jerusalem Post is a proper newspaper, so their blog section is not very prominent on the site.
As I've said many times, I blog to get my message across. I think that I have a lot of crucial things to say to the world, and I certainly can't expect to find newspapers to publish my writing frequently, if at all. I'm the "editor in chief" of my very own newspaper aka blog, and unless I would be given a real paid writing op-ed position in a well-read newspaper, I don't see the point in giving up my blogging.
What do you think?
