Post- Passover Blog Round Up

Since many Jewish and Israeli bloggers have woken from their Passover hibernation, there are some interesting blog posts out there in the cyber world of Jewish blogging. Visit, enjoy, comment and share.

There's no real order to this, and I'm just posting blog post titles, without indicating which blogs they come from. And I didn't even count how many posts there are. Enjoy...

WHY THIS PESACH WAS DIFFERENT FROM ALL OTHERS….
Commandments
Pishers' Guide to Jerusalem #28, Machane Yehuda WC, Fright at First Sight
Dead Gaza journalist was an experienced high resolution drone operator and Hamas sympathizer (update)
the sale of chametz has to be taken seriously
Recipe for Knaidlach-Incredible Story from the Bais Halevy
Gush Shiloh, Grape-Growing Center of World
Raising Quirky Kids
Sewing the Seeds of Love
Synagogues in the Hotel Area of Jerusalem
Nirtza
Palestinian Chutzpah Magnificently Encapsulated in One Story

Whoever says that blogging is a dead art/sport/social media format is 100% wrong. The only thing that has gotten weaker is the feeling of community we once had. That's a shame, and that's why I continue with these periodic roundups.

PS I'm always interested in meeting new blogs, so if you have any to recommend, please let me know in the comments, thanks.

I'm definitely missing the Kosher Cooking Carnival and even JPix (now that I'm not doing 52Frames any more). Maybe we should think about reviving them.

That would be nice but the bloggers of today don't act like community. It's rare to see comments and links. We should talk

Blogging is not dead, but over the past
five years, around half the Jewish blogs
have become abandoned and inactive.

I wish that the Jewish ex-bloggers
would have given their blogs to me,
instead of completely abandoning them.

The most likely causes of blog-death
seem to be boredom, lack of monetary
rewards, and social media web sites,
like: MySpace and FaceBook.

Mr Cohen, I believe it takes ‘belief in the message’ that keeps a blog going. I’ve been posting for several years and do not care about the ‘monetary rewards’.

Some bloggers began blogging on the mainstream sites. There have been attempts to organize, but I don't see it helping. I still love the freedom it gives me.
Every time I think of stopping someone says how much they enjoy my articles.
