Something Different... Answering questions and making curious observations (online) since 2005.

Hi, I'm Shifra.
You may recognize me from my guest posting on DovBear, or my quotable quotes on some other blogs-about-town.
I'm a pretty well rounded, and well grounded, Orthodox Jewish woman.
Some people think I've got a sense of humor too, and for that I am grateful.

So here's the deal:
If you have problems (and I know that ya do) post 'em here, or send me an email with a question for posting and I'll try to give the best non-judgemental and practical advice I can.
I encourage people to throw in their comments about the questions or about my advice and we'll all have a good time and maybe help each other out too.

I'll also try and post some of my thoughts on Jewish and general social issues.
Oh, and spelling doesn't count, but language does. Keep it clean, OK?

PS Many thanks to orthomom- a fine young blogger who nagged me till I put this up.

Welcome to the Dark Side, Shifra!

"Orthomom" doesn't sound young. A nagger, yes. But young?

Ah, let me lay that to rest as my first order of business!
Despite her name Orthomom is definately a young blogger :)

"Young" is a relative term, I'm sure.

So...are you handing out door prizes? And would you care to share your glitter story on Mayim Rabim? Free link for your new blog!

(Yes, that was me being shameless.)

I will share my glitter story, but you already seem to have a shifra on staff- how will we know who is who?!

my issue is that i'm addicted to blogging,can you help me shiffy?

At 11:00 AM, Blogger orthomom said...

Thnks Shifra! I guess if I have to be a nag, I may as well be a young one!

At 11:01 AM, Blogger orthomom said...

That's a good one. Amshi. Shifra, can you adress that issue for all the blogaholics among us?

At 11:03 AM, Anonymous shanna said...

You're just commenting - pick a new name for yourself. Like, um... A. Shifra. Or Shifra the Second. Or The Other Shifra.

(Sorry, it's Monday, I'm not being particularly creative.)

Hey, Blogger is RSS-able at last?!
Apart from that: Behatzloche!

The addiciton problem is easy: just take a week off, and post less frequently. It makes enemies, weakens friendships, but at least you get some work done.

Mazal tov, Shifra!

Congratulations on actually making a full-blown blog before me! (Psychotoddler isn't as much of a nag as Orthomom is, i guess ;-) )

Thanks for the welcome and encouragement.

PS. What is RSS?

So you're like the Dear Abby of the J-blogland? Cyoool.

My husband walked outside today to get the paper wearing nothing but sneakers and socks.

This is not the problem.

The problem is some people think he's a genius. I've seen him walk straight into walls.

How do I let the world know he's not as smart as they think he is?

You'll be my next post :)
