The New York Times J-Blog Review- Part I
Ok, it's not Sunday, and I don't write for the New York Times but that's no reason I can't do a little blog reviewing of my own.
Think of it as an elaborate blogroll if you will.
Don't fret if I missed you this time, my blogging time is limited especially on a Thursday night (the kugels don't bake themselves you know) - so I'll continue the series as I find the time.
If you want your blog reviewed here let me know- I can't read every blog but I can make up some random stuff and hope for the best.
Here we go!
DovBear is a very popular J-Blogger whos self-titled blog mixes religion, politics, humor and good writing and receives a wealth of comments from Jews (and a couple non-Jews) of diverse backgrounds and experience. While consistantly missed by the mainstream media this hardly below-the-radar blogger is well known for his sharp insights on his own blog and quick witted responses on other J-blogs about town.
Orthomom is my blogging buddy and is really responsible for the birth of this blog. Her keen insights into world and local Jewish news have attracted the attention of bloggers, lurkers, and unscrupulous newsmen alike. Her series on famous Jewish women is definately worth reading and sharing with the young Jewish women in your life.
You've gotta love Mirty.
Her openess, quick wit and absorbing story telling make her blog a pleasure to visit.
I'm very excited about her new on-line book club, which I look forward to joining just as soon as I can get a copy of the book.
The Godol Hador is like a modern day Thoreau (if Thoreau was born and raised in an Orthodox Jewish environment, and went to a cubical to write instead of the woods.) His exploration of what it means to believe, feel, and observe the Torah is a journey upon which his many readers' ideas are welcome and addressed (except maybe those of underage yeshiva boys on break.)
That's all the reviewing I can manage for today, until next time, happy blogging!
