Best Post Awards

The voting for the JIB Awards has finished its first round – except for the Best Post Awards. The Overall Best Post category had the most entries. I went through them all (believe it or not) and here are my picks:

For Category A, Yourish’s Hamas Propaganda. For Category B, Remembering Rachel, which I found extremely moving. I am of course biased, but I thought my post On Holocaust Remembrance Day, M16s, and a New Respect for Veterans, was the best of the Category C offerings. What Judaism Is About gets my vote in Category D. Irina writes a beautiful post, Preamble to the Rest of My Life in Category E. DAG writes movingly about his loss in I Still Love You More Than Life Itself, which gets my nod in Category F.

The point of the JIB Awards is to expose people to new blogs. Just reading this award category alone has my favorites box bursting at the seams – and I haven’t even started with the specialized categories.

Go ahead and take a look. You’ll enjoy!

    Were I not as biased as yourself, I’d have agreed on Group C. 😀

    My JIB voting took me the whole day at work on Monday, because I read ALL of the posts…yes, in all of the categories. It took a long time.

    Thank you so very much for the kind words about my post, Remembering Rachel, and for the recommendation. I can’t begin to tell you how much it means to me.

    That said, I haven’t read all of the nominated posts yet, but I your nominated post was wonderful, and I’m so glad I had the chance to read it. I’ve been armed here at the house for a long time now, I keep a shotgun, but I am now in the process of obtaining a conceal and carry license, and I just purchased a pistol. I’m feeling many of the same things you wrote about, and it was good to read them.

    I’m glad I found you. That is the best part of the JIBs, finding people like you!

    Thank you again.

    LindaSoG – you are so right about this being the best part of the JIBs! I just wish I had the time to keep up with all of the new blogs.
