The finals of the JIB Awards have started, and before you go to vote for anyone else, you have to do one thing. Most people reading my blog like Jewish blogs, and the person who has done the most to promote Jewish blogs is Soccerdad, who started the Jewish blog carnival called Havel-Havalim. He (or better, Havel-Havalim itself) is up for the best contribution. Click on the link, then click on the lower right hand corner where it says “…contribution….”, and vote. You’ll be glad you did!
Then there is Ezzie of Serandez, who keeps everyone together by linking, and linking, and then linking some more. I personally voted for him here (click on the link, go down to Best of Rest and click there to vote).
I hope to have some time to go through the individual posts and make some recommendations. I am up for Best Overall Post, after having the temerity to nominate myself, and I hope you go over and vote for me, although there is some very tough competition. I think the best post category is the fairest in the end, because it pits a specific piece of writing (or series) against another specific piece of writing.
